Abstract:

The collection consists of a typescript copy of Dunciad minimus, a lengthy, mock-heroic satire concocted in 1950 and later rewritten and finally published in 1970 as Dunciad Minor. With profuse annotations credited to contemporary commentator Arthur Phillips and the 18th century critic Ambrose Philips, written by Hope. Although nominally a satire of Pope's Dunciad, the poem pokes fun at modern literary criticism and academic pedantry in general. Also contains the text of Arthur Phillips' radio broadcast, Standard works I'd like to burn: Alexander Pope, broadcast 7 Feb. 1950.
