THE

POETICAL WORKS

OF

ALEXANDER POPE.

WITH

THE LIFE OF THE AUTHOR,

BY SAMUEL JOHNSON, L.L.D.

POPE, the monarch of the tuneful train !
To whom he Nature's, and Britanria's praise !
All their bright honors rush into his lays!
And all that glorious warmth his lays reveal,
Which only poets, kings, and pat:iots feel!
Tho'gay as nirth, as curious thought sedate,
As elegance polite, as power elate;
Profound as reason, and is justice clear;
Soft as compassion, vet as truth severe;
As bounty copious, as persuasion weet,
Like Nature various and like Art complete ;
So fine her morals, so sublime her views,
His life is almost equall'd by his Muse.

MORAL ESSAYS,

IN

FOUR EPISTLES,

TO

SEVERAL PERSONS.

• Est brevitate opus, ut currat sententia, neu se
Impediat verbis lassas onerantibus aures :
Et sermone opus est, modo tristi, saepe jocoso,
Defendente vivein modo rhetoris atque poeta,
Interdum urbani, parcentis viribus, atque
Extenuantis eas consulto.'

HOR.

Advertisement,

THE Essay on Man was intended to have been

comprised in Four Books : The First of which, the Author has given us under

that title, in Four Epistles. The Second was to have consisted of the same number: 1. Of the extent and limits of human
