The following comment refers to the Kindle edition of "An Essay on Criticism" by Alexander Pope with introductory and explanatory notes, produced by Ted Garvin, David Garcia and the Online Distributed Proofreading Team.
38 pages where every verse is worth its words, however hard some of the references might appear nowadays. Pope wrote it when what we think in term of ancient classics were not so old, and not yet swept away and submerged by tide after tide of new works, making it difficult for the new generations to find the time to delve into the wit of the past. "Wit", a word that Pope does use often in this work and which deserves a study of its own due to the multiple layers of meaning it discloses. Still, this edition has the merit to offer an interactive explanation of the more or less obscure quotations, adding to the gratification the reader can derive.
Many facets of criticism are explored and expounded by Pope, making them appear illuminating, convincing and, what matters most, simple in their brevity.
Few pages that deserves to be mulled over several times to be appreciated even more.
And last, but not the least, Amazon offers this edition at zero cost. True, it is available free on line, but it is an honest move by Amazon to declare it and offer it all the same in its catalogue.
