Review

""An Essay on Man" . . . was one of the most widely disseminated and well-known publications of the 18th century, notably impacting Enlightenment writers Voltaire, David Hume, Adam Smith, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Jones provides a reliable modern version."--"Library Journal"

Book Description

Originally published in 1913 as part of the Pitt Press Series, this book contains the text of Alexander Pope's poetic 'epistles' on the nature of man, originally written between 1733 and 1734. Thompson prefaces the poems with a synopsis of each, as well as a history of their creation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ourselves To Know 25 July 2016
By Christian Schlect - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Another great piece of English literature that I missed reading while a youth. Alexander Pope was both extremely bright and blessed with a graceful writing style;these two assets were combined and put to good use on a topic of keen personal interest to all readers.

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.

Alexander Pope's An Essay on Man is without a doubt one of the greatest works of English Literature; the words flow beautifully and the subject is worthwhile.

Pope has a way with words like no other author I have read. He laces it with many names from history and brings extra meaning to his work. Mike Fisher

5.0 out of 5 stars It is sublime 26 July 2013
By Clevis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sublime. Would be part of the Canon if written 2900 years ago.

"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!"
