Pope, Print, and Meaning
Oxford University Press, 2001 - Literary Criticism - 257 pages
Pope's fascination with print--with annotations, illustrations, parallel texts, title-pages, revisions-- shapes this reading of his work. The book offers fresh insights into Pope's self-presentation and his relation to his readers: he emerges as a figure marginalized socially, politically, and sexually, who gambles with his private life in confronting his opponents.
