If you want to know more than it is reasonable for a layman to know about Pope and his poetry, this is your go-to book. It is not a beach book. It is not a That's-about-enough-about-Alex-Cross-I-need-to-cleanse-my-palate book. Neither should it be confused with von Ranke's 1847 multi-volume History of the Popes. Different guys. Some of them taller than Pope. All with better hats. None could write as well.
