Product description

Review

Mack brings us both Pope and the age in a biography as entertaining as it is masterly.

Mack's long-awaited life fulfills the highest expectations. . . . Written with elegance and clarity. . . . [A] superb work.

A first-rate biography. . . . Doubles as a masterly work of literary and cultural history. . . . Beautifully written.

Brings to life in richly imagined historical context the controversial figure of Alexander Pope, the most important poet of his time. . . . Brilliant analysis.--Patricia Meyer Spacks

Long-awaited. . . . Mr. Mack has now laid before us in impressive and authoritative fashion the whole life of Pope, an invaluable gift of scholarship and judgment. . . . Reads like a good Russian novel.--John M. Aden

[A] crowning achievement. . . . The rewards of reading [Pope] are immense--and so are the rewards of reading about him in this excellent biography.--John Gross --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
