    I’ve always believed that miracles can happen and that great physical and/or mental suffering can engender greatness. This indeed proved to be the case with this splendid work by Alexander Pope.I find Pope a fascinating individual. He was a catholic, at a time when legislation was repressive with regard to this religion; he was practically self-educated, a semi-invalid all his life, in fact he contracted Pott’s disease, a tubercular affection of the bones, which may have been transmitted thr [...]

    "At ev'ry Word a Reputation dies""The Battle of the Beaux and Belles" by Aubrey BeardsleyOne of the wittiest poems ever written, "The Rape* of the Lock" (first published in 1712) makes good-natured fun of a real-life situation: a 21 year old Baron, Lord Robert Petre, rudely snipped off of a lock of hair from Arabella Fermor, a lovely young lady of his acquaintance, without her consent. Arabella was incensed (the situation wasn't helped when Lord Petre went and married someone else the next year) [...]

    Compared to the Nineteenth Century's Romantic movement and the Seventeenth's Shakespeare and Milton, the Eighteenth has always felt a veritable void to me. There was a little bit going on in France with Diderot and Voltaire, and some minor British works by Swift and Defoe, but by and large, Eighteenth Century literature is Fielding and Pope.He began his inimitable wit and wordly mastery with 'An Essay on Criticism' when he was only 21. It was a varied, vivid exploration of what makes writing goo [...]

    How to Write Poetry like PopePoetry looks hard, but it’s really not;It is an art that has been largely forgot.So hear me now; to me bend your ear—The ideal pupil makes his mind a mirror.I will lay steps, the mystery unfoldThings long-known, though never grow they old.First of all, the grammar you must change;The normal order of words, you rearrange.The verb at the end, you can put.(Really, it’s easier than it looks.)Then sweet-sounding symmetries you find;Put the last before, the first beh [...]

    On re-reading:Ooooh, I do love me a good satire. I don't think I was as familiar with mythology during any of my previous readings, so I definitely picked up on more allusions this time through the mock-epic.For those unfamiliar, this treats, in epic terms (heroic couplets and all), a most tragic event that happened to a young lady: a bold Baron covertly cuts a lustrous lock of her hair. I picture our heroine, Belinda, with her cherubic face and heavenly hair looking something like this:which wo [...]

    কবিতা একটা সমস্যা আমার কাছে, এর একটা কারণ হইলো গিয়ে, কবিতার সংজ্ঞা আমার কাছে পরিষ্কার না। এই বস্তু এতবার চেহারা পাল্টাইছে, এতবার, আজকের দিনেই দেখেন না, শাহ মুহম্মদ সগীরেরে কি আজকের আন্দাজে কব [...]

    The Rape of the Lock is a humorous indictment of the vanities and idleness of 18th-century high society. Basing his poem on a real incident among families of his acquaintance, Pope intended his verses to cool hot tempers and to encourage his friends to laugh at their own folly.The poem is perhaps the most outstanding example in the English language of the genre of mock-epic. The epic had long been considered one of the most serious of literary forms; it had been applied, in the classical period, [...]

    Light hearted and satirical, I feel the whole point of Alexander Pope for writing this poem was to portray the pettiness and shallowness of the society and time he was living ine Restoration period, a time when society gave more importance to physical beauty and material thingsI think he meant for this work to be simply satirical and not inspirational.

    It was okay, but a bit boring. Oh and also not at all what I thought it would be about! I guess I was concentrating more on the word 'rape' than 'lock'. My mistake.

    Alexander Pope ( 1688-1744) is a clasical English poet. He lived in the age of classical values and predilections, pure beauty, grand style, the majestic castle Hampton court and its balls. In his Rape of the Lock he criticised false values of the conventional society of Queeen Anne's reign. He puts it to mock heroic parody, imitating heroic style only debasing it and treating it sneeringly. The verse is blankverse, typically English inheritance, which abounds in alliterations present from early [...]

    izumen/2013/11/bl"Поуп иронизира цялата ситуация с къдрицата и с много тънко чувство за хумор осмива трагедията на благородничката.

    I know it's probably on me that this didn't work for me, but I just can't give it more than 1 star. Maybe if I wasn't forced into reading it for literature.

    Alexander Pope's "The Rape of the Lock" was more light-hearted and entertaining than it was inspirational. A pop culture reference comes to mind with the comment from an American Idol judge who says to a talented singer, "you could sing the telephone book." I think that is exactly what Pope did. He is brilliant in his wordplay and elaborately cultivated metaphors, but I could care less about the topic of his satire. He espouses the injustice of women being seen and appreciated for their beauty a [...]

    Pope's poetic narrative on an audacious hair-clipping had me laughing out loud. The idea and its execution are impressive. Pope inflates his subject until it crackles with irony; from the title to the hyper-indulgent descriptions, the effect is on point. The Rape of the Lock (preposterously) boasts a machinery of supernatural agents, references/adjustments to Milton and the Greeks - there's even an archetypical "descent." Beyond operating on a thematic level, I must add, Pope's heroic couplet th [...]

    This didn't take me very long to read at all, and was a really interesting read! The imagery and the larger metaphors were really well done and made it an enjoyable read. t was rather funny in places as well, which definitely surprised me!Once I've studied it next semester, I think I'll understand it better and have mor eto say about it. So I'll probably updated it then!

    “What dire offence from am'rous causes springs,What mighty contests rise from trivial things,”The opening lines of ‘The Rape of the lock’ throw much light on the very theme of the book. Interestingly, based on the true story of a minor scuffle between two aristocratic families that took the form of intense enmity, the book was actually a reconciliation attempt by their common friend Alexander Pope. He was an 18th century English poet best remembered for his translation of the Greek epic [...]

    One of the most accessible of eighteenth-century poets, Pope here manages to trump his own heavier philosophical writings with what at first appears to be a bit of fluff, but which reveals quite a bit about contemporary views of identity and culture.There's a lot to like here even on the surface, as our inept 'hero' tries to woo his lady fair and instead finds that, holy Battle of the Sexes, she is just not into him like that. Hilarity ensues.But below that surface reading, take a gander at how [...]

    I love this lovely piece of satire.The verse is both comical and beautiful, discussing the sylph's as "lucid" was magnificent as it means both light and clear.(I love a double meaning)The allegory of the 'underworld' symbolizing the human subconscious and our dreams was a really wonderful scene, very Alice and Wonderland-esque.I read it for class and my prof really made it come alive for me.I love the little trivial, frivolous world of society ladies and fop-ish gentlemen that Pope builds.It was [...]

    We were ordered to read this thing in senior English. It was a bad choice. Perhaps our teacher thought we'd think it funny while appreciating how subtle our understanding had become by virtue of having read the classical sources which Pope imitates. Well, we could see how he was trying to be funny, but humor evolves with culture and no one laughed. Besides, the original intention of the poem was personal, referring to actual persons and events which might have meant something to his readership, [...]

    An entertaining mock-epic concerning women, wealth, and society. Pope's florid writing style concerning such a trivial subject - a woman having her hair cut off - emphasizes the themes within The Rape of the Lock, such as women's superficial facades in that time period. I gleaned more from discussion in class than I did while reading it on my own, so I would recommend reading about the poem's cultural context or talking about it with a friend, peer, teacher, or professor.

    Sinemada Mockumentary (belgesel adı altında dalgasını geçen fake belgesel) neyse şiirde de Moc-epic (destan yazar gibi dalga geçme) o. Bizde bu türün bir örneği yok ama Pope kesilen bir bukle üzerinden İlyada-Odessiayla aynı kurguyu kullanarak o dönemin soylu yaşantısıyla dalgasını geçiyor.Pope hakkında şöyle diyorlarmış: şiirden nefret etmek için ya gerçekten nefret dolu olmanız ya da Alexander Pope okumanız gerekir.

    Honestly, I hate Pope. And I can't stand The Rape of the Lock. I recognize that it's supposed to be funny and a mock epic, and see the humor value, but I just don't like it. I know that the language is ridiculous on purpose, and the main characters are repulsive by design, but I just can't handle it. I give it two stars because I *should* like it, haha.

    I wasn't sure what I expected with this poem, in the past I have struggled to read extended poetry however the lyricism and rhythm of this poem changed this for me. By far this is one of my favourite poems

    Sure, I would've enjoyed it more if only I belonged to Pope's own literary circle - or I had a richer literary background. I regret the latter but feel no regrets at all for the former. Heroic Couplet was delicious, though.

    A fairly abusive use of the heroic couplet, an insipid subject even considering the treatment, and too long by far.
