Details

Embedded in a discussion of the 18th century literary practice of imitation, this study offers an in-depth analysis of the three full-length satires from Alexander Pope’s Imitations of Horace. Taking into account aspects such as content, metre, message, personal references, and language, the three satires are compared to their Latin originals, shedding light on how Pope succeeds in transferring the texts into his contemporary world and idiom whilst sticking very closely to the original framework on a larger scale. Thus, they “show the poet bound hand and foot and yet dancing as if free.“
