Grub Street: studies in a subculture by Pat Rogers( Book )

20 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<P>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
Alexander Pope by Alexander Pope( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member 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
The Alexander Pope encyclopedia by Pat Rogers( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 423 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."--Jacket
