Dear Honourable Judge! It is very evident that they were the ones who were insinuating Leo X to declare me as a heretic, when I was not one. I believed that they must have felt that I was a threat to them and their reputation hence they were so eager to declare me as a heretic and rebel. Even before my hearing at the Imperial Diet meeting in Worms in January 1521, I had written and published several books under…...

Pope’s “The Rape of the Lock”
Words • 1672
Pages • 7
Introduction Pope's "The Rape of the Lock" The destruction of the grand style of the epic is just what Pope was after in his mock epic, "The Rape of the Lock." Pope had no such universal goal, or moral pronouncements to make as did Milton. His purpose was merely to expose the life of the nobility of his time. While Milton chose blank verse to express the immensity of the landscape of his epic, Pope chose to utilize the heroic…...

As William Hazlitt wrote of this poem and of `Description of the Morning in London'': `here is not only a dry humour, an exquisite tone of irony, in these productions of his pen; but there is a touching, unpretending pathos, mixed up with the most whimsical and eccentric strokes of pleasantry and satire. ' (Williams, 1995: p. 327). Pope, however, did not receive such favourable criticism for his work on the countryside. John Dennis launched further criticism of `Windsor-Forest' in…...

Words • 942

In the fifty years following 1050, the Normans made great advances in both southern Italy and Sicily. These successes cannot be solely put down to one factor but instead an accumulation. The Normans were well known for their ferocity in battle being direct descendants of Vikings. Their prowess in battle was only elevated by the fact that the peoples of southern Italy were deeply divided contrasting the unity of the Normans. Some may also put the Normans success down to…...

Jessie Pope and Wilfred Owen
Words • 822
Pages • 4
Jessie Pope’s treatment of the subject of war strikingly contrasts to the anti-war poet Wilfred Owen. Pope’s poetry appears to take a carefree approach, however, is in fact very brutal when compared to Owen’s. In Jessie Pope’s ‘Who’s for the Game?’ there is extensive use of rhetorical questions to persuade and pressure British men to enlist. For instance, she writes, ‘Who’ll grip and tackle the job unafraid?’ Pope is addressing all young men and is therefore challenging their masculinity; anyone…...

Paper Type:Satire essays
From the excerpts studied in The Rape of the Lock, Alexander Pope skilfully uses the mock epic genre to satirize the trifling nature of his society through exaggeration, parody and juxtaposition in rhyming couplets. The epic form makes everything larger than life which Pope uses to reveal the absurdity of the society he lives in. A simple card game is turned into a complex “combat on [a] velvet plain,” which exaggerates the little action that actually takes place in the…...
