An Essay on Man (The Complete Poems of Alexander Pope Book 1) Kindle Edition
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I found the footnotes provided by the book's editor, Tom Jones, to be quite helpful. However, his introductory essay, while intelligent, seemed to me to be too long.
"Who sees with equal eye, as God of all,
A hero perish, or a sparrow fall,
Atoms or systems into ruin hurl'd,
And now a bubble burst, and now a world.
Hope humbly then; with trembling pinions soar;
Wait the great teacher Death; and God adore!"
