Pope spent his formative years as a poet translating Homer, beginning with the Iliad, and in his translation he successfully found a style that answers the sublimity and grace of Homer.

"The Science of Human Nature is, like all other Sciences, reduced to a few, clear points; There are not many certain Truths in this World. It is therefore in the Anatomy of the Mind, as in that of the Body, more Good will accrue to mankind by attending to the large, open, and perceptible parts, than by studying too much such finer nerves and vessels as will for ever escape our observation. The Essay on Man, to use the Author's own words, is a perfect system of ethics, in which definition he included religion. hence it is that the first Epistle regards man with respect to the Lord and governor of the universe; as the second, with respect to himself; the third, to society, and the fourth to happiness. Having therefore formed and finished his Essay in this view, he was much mortified whenever he found it considered in any other; or as a part and introduction only to a larger work. Concerning the universal prayer, which concludes the Essay, the author composed that prayer as the sum of all, to show that his system was founded in free will and terminated in piety. This edition includes numerous responses and answers to Pope's Essay on man"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved).

"This is a new edition of The Dunciad in Four Books of 1743, the culmination of the series of Dunciads which Alexander Pope produced over the last decade and a half of his life. It comprises not only a poem, but also a mass of authorial annotation and appendices, and this new edition is the only one available which gives all the verse and the prose in a clearly laid-out form, with a full modern commentary. Accessibly presented on the same page as Pope's text are explanatory notes, written in a clear style adapted to the needs of undergraduate readers, but full enough to address the interests of scholars."--BOOK JACKET.
Alexander Pope by Alexander Pope ( Book )
67 editions published between 1900 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 986 libraries worldwide
"Pope's letters are fascinating documents, apart from his importance as a poet. Highly revealing of his character - they also comprise a body of writing of interest for an understanding of his times: its personalities, its plots, its tragedies and exiles, its loves, its scandals, the movement of its religious, political, and philosophical ideas, its sense of poetry, and its notions of poetic craft and genre." "George Sherburn's scholarly five-volume Collected Correspondence is the necessary basis for any new edition. The collection presented here is in the first place a balanced and varied selection from Sherburn. Since 1956, however, many new letters have been discovered, and this volume includes most of them. Many are among Pope's best, though they have till now been scattered in learned journals." "This selection supplies an introduction, a commentary on each letter identifying allusions and quotations (with translations where necessary), and thematic and biographical indexes."--BOOK JACKET.
