Alexander Pope

Alexander Pope

was an 18th-century English poet, best known for his satirical verse and for his translation of Homer
To wake the soul by tender strokes of art,
To raise the genius, and to mend the heart;
To make mankind, in conscious virtue bold,
Live o'er each scene, and be what they behold--
For this the tragic Muse first trod the stage.More Alexander Pope quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
