Pope Is One Of The Most Quoted
English Authors of All Time. . .Only

Pope Is Credited With The
Popularization of HEROIC COUPLET
and SATIRE IN VERSE FORM!
His Deep Understanding of The
18th-Cent. English Society Lent A
Greater Perspective In Exposing
The Follies Plus Foibles, Pomp n
Show That Were Inherent In The
Wealthy Class Of English Society !

Pope Was A Catholic and Had To
Bear A Great Deal of
Discriminations Perpetuated by
The Govt. Of The Day.He Had To Live
Beyond The Normative 10miles
Boundary of London or /and
Westminster And Thus He Lived
Near The Windsor Forrest ,Which
Was Later On Immortalised
Through His Works!
His Influence Was Varied In Its
Extent As Some Subsequent
Authors Like Byron Held Pope In
Great Esteem, Whereas Others Like
Wordsworth Had Virtually No
Appreciations Claiming Pope As
The Author of Decadent Verse!
Still Pope’s Works Are World
Classics In The Genre of Satires !
HAPPY BIRTHDAY,ALEXAN DER
POPE !
