The Presentation of Women in Swift and Pope

Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift published much poetry in the 18th century that related to the representation and perception of women in their societies. Both poets rely heavily on the use of satire to present perceptions of both sexes in The Rape of the Lock and The Lady’s Dressing Room.

Critical Analysis of the "Rape of the Lock" by Pope

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 couplet to trivialize this grandeur. Pope's quick wit bounces the reader along his detailed description of his parlor-room...
