Alexander Pope

Pope {{circa}} 1727 Alexander Pope (21 May 1688 – 30 May 1744) is seen as one of the greatest English poets and the foremost poet of the early 18th century. He is best known for satirical and discursive poetry, including ''The Rape of the Lock'', ''The Dunciad'', and ''An Essay on Criticism,'' and for his translation of Homer. After Shakespeare, Pope is the second-most quoted writer in English, according to ''The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations'', some of his verses having become popular in common parlance (e. g., damning with faint praise). He is considered a master of the heroic couplet. Provided by Wikipedia
