I would have all the parodies as they are called referred to the author they imitate — When I began this long paper, I thought I should have filled it with setting down the several passages I had marked in the edition I had, but I find it unnecessary, so many of them falling under the same rule. After twenty times reading the whole, I never in my opinion saw so much good satire, or more good sense, in so many lines" 16 July ; Works of Swift, ed.

Thomas Hearne: "This Alexander Pope, though he be an English poet, yet he is but an indifferent scholar, mean at Latin, and can hardly read Greek. He is a very ill-natured man and covetous, and excessively proud" 18 July ; in Reliquae Hearniae, ed. Bliss Richard Savage : "On the day the book was first vended, a crowd of authors besieged the shop; entreaties, advices, threats of law, and battery, nay, cries of treason were all employed, to hinder the coming out of the Dunciad; on the other side, the booksellers and hawkers made as great efforts to procure it: what could a few poor authors do against so great a majority as the public?

There was no stopping a torrent with a finger, so out it came. Some false editions of the book having an owl in their frontispiece, the true one, to distinguish it, fixed in its stead an ass laden with authors. Then another surreptitious one being printed with the same ass, the new edition in octavo returned for distinction to the owl again. Hence arose a great contest of booksellers against booksellers, and advertisements against advertisements; some recommended the 'Edition of the Owl,' and others the 'Edition of the Ass;' by which names they came to be distinguished, to the great honour also of the gentlemen of the Dunciad" "Account of the Dunciad" in Moulton, Library of Literary Criticism Joseph Warton : "I know a person, whose name would be an ornament to these papers, if I was suffered to insert it, who, after reading a book of the Dunciad, always sooths himself, as he calls it, by turning to a canto in the Fairy Queen.

This is not the case in that very delightful and beautiful poem, Mac Flecnoe, from which POPE has borrowed so many hints, and images, and ideas. But Dryden's poem was the offspring of contempt, and Pope's of malignity" Essay on the Genius and Writings of Pope n. Percival Stockdale : "It abounds with fertility of imagination; with powerful satire; and with vigour, and magnificence of verse; but the perishable dramatis personae are not worthy of the muse of its authour: they will be less and less known, or remembered; and therefore it will continue to be read, with decreasing pleasure.

It must likewise be objected to the Dunciad, that some of its heroes deserved a better station. I have no doubt, however, that they had been very impertinent or insolent to Pope; and, therefore, they deserved punishment. A poet has not more resentment than other people; it only appears that he has, because he can show it more eminently. As to presumptuous blockheads, he is a good citizen who exposes them to their merited contempt.

And if he can cure them of their 'cacoethes,' he both serves them, and the community" Lectures on the truly eminent English Poets John Hamilton Reynolds : "Pope is more liked in his satires, than in any other parts of his poetry; because he struck them more from himself. His satires are the offspring of his irritated feelings; — they come directly from his heart, and tell tales of himself.

They are Pope melted into verse" The Champion 2 June George Taylor : "Dr.

Warton asks, what are the sensations of a man after reading Gray's Odes and Elegy, and after he has been reading the Dunciad? If such were to he the canons of criticism, we must confine our admiration to those poets 'Qui toujours stir 'un' ton semblent psalmodier'" Quarterly Review 32 October John Wilson : "There is no denying that satire is apt to excite the emotions the Doctor [ Joseph Warton ] complains of, and few more strongly than the Dunciad.
