The Alexander Pope encyclopedia by Pat Rogers( )
7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Alexander Pope (1688-1744) was the most important English poet of the 18th century, as well as an essayist, satirist, and critic. Many of his sayings are still quoted today. His Essay on Criticism shaped the aesthetic views of English Neoclassicism while his Essay on Man reflected the moral views of the Enlightenment. He participated fully in the critical debates of his time and was one of the few poets who supported himself through his writing. This reference conveniently summarizes his life and works." "The encyclopedia also provides a chronology and concludes with a selected, general bibliography. Because of Pope's central importance to the Enlightenment this book is also a useful companion to 18th-century literary and intellectual culture."--BOOK JACKET

Grub Street: studies in a subculture by Pat Rogers( Book )
17 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1972, this is the first detailed study of the milieu of the eighteenth-century literary hack and its significance in Augustan literature. Although the modern term 'Grub Street' has declined into vague metaphor, for the Augustan satirists it embodied not only an actual place but an emphatic lifestyle. Pat Rogers shows that the major satirists - Pope, Swift and Fielding - built a potent fiction surrounding the real circumstances in which the scribblers lived, and the importance of this aspect of their writing. The author first locates the original Grub Street, in what is no

Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen( Book )
9 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.' With this famous declaration Jane Austen launches into the story of the five Bennet sisters. It is a story that on first reading is full of suspense, surprise and, ultimately, satisfaction, and which on re-reading commands a deeper admiration for the author's remarkable skill in managing a deceptively complex plot to its triumphant conclusion. First published in 1813, and Austen's most popular novel in her own lifetime, Pride and Prejudice has since been widely recognised as one of the finest novels in the English language. This volume provides comprehensive explanatory notes, an extensive critical introduction covering the context and publication history of the work, a chronology of Austen's life, and an authoritative textual apparatus. This edition is an indispensable resource for all scholars and readers of Austen."--BOOK JACKET
