From humble beginnings, came a master poet... This lively and authoritative guide to the life of Alexander Pope, the man who emerged from obscure origins to become the uncrowned poet Laureate of his age. Though Pope called life “a warfare upon earth”, Dr Rosslyn offers us a sympathetic portrait of the poet who overcame poverty and, what in 18th Century England was, an embarrassing deformity. Not only did he become a renowned poet, he also make the largest literary fortune since Shakespeare. Rosslyn describes the mixture of passion and pragmatism that caused Pope to create poetry out of a legion of enemies, and pays tribute to the professionalism of a writer who thought no sacrifice too great for his art.
