I took a class in grad school on the Age of Satire, but didn't learn that much about Alexander Pope, aside from reading "The Rape of the Lock", one of the greatest poems ever. This book was rife with information about the time and the scandal. It was a slow start but became gripping.

An excellent book--a compelling version (and view) of London in the early 1700s and the circumstances surrounding the creation of Alexander Pope's "The Rape of the Lock." I loved every minute of it! And Cameron Stewart's reading not only of the novel, but in particular of the second version of the mock epic at the very end, was the perfect icing on a most delectable cake!

This bk is about a portion of the life of Alexander Pope. And it is the story of the social scandal that gave him the inpiration for his epic satirical poem ' The Rape of the Lock'. I enjoyed it and liked the reader, Cameron Stewart.
