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.

From the Back Cover:

"This is a definitive, reader-friendly edition of a poem that ought to be circulated as widely as possible. The textual commentary is a model of its kind--lucid, full, rich in insight, and especially good at tracking down and elucidating the allusions in which the poem abounds. The introduction is also an exemplary piece of literary scholarship."--Brian Young, Christ Church College, University of Oxford

"Tom Jones's edition of An Essay on Man is an impressive achievement. His introduction and notes are deeply learned and useful. They synthesize much of what we know about the poem's composition, publication, sources, analogues, and influence, but also present fresh, original insights into its meanings and importance as a document of eighteenth-century intellectual history. The sophistication with which Jones treats the philosophical contexts of the poem is exceptional."--James Noggle, Wellesley College

"This is a very good edition. The lively and wide-ranging introduction is attentive to both the original context and continuing relevance of Pope's poem."--David Womersley, St. Catherine's College, University of Oxford
