My English Professor Mark Kobler wrote on Classroom board; "An Essay on Criticism" by Alexander Pope (English poet c. 1725*)
True Ease in Writing comes from Art, not chance,
As those move easiest who have learned to dance,
'Tis not enough no Harshness gives offense,
The sound must seem an echo to the sense.

* Actual published date was Tuesday, May 15, 1711. Mr. Kobler remembered parts of the essay by heart.
I was so impressed I ordered the book through Amazon. Here it is from page 18 line 14 - 17.
I have another jewel, "The imitation of Christ" Re-edited into modern English by W Raynal, OSB 1872
through Amazon. Thank you Amazon and generous sellers (offer).
Kang.

So lyrically pleasant, yet with a bite. My first full reading. This Kindle version has helpful annotations (linked by numbers at the end of selected lines). I liked the hyperlinks, but it was tricky navigating back from the end notes to the body (no links going the other way.

Although occasionally sounding arrogant (which among us does not?) Pope has a clear view into human nature. Enjoyable even in small doses.

For a poet so young this poem is indeed an accomplishment and a skillful contribution to our understanding of merit in reviews and criticism. At best it has Pope's incisive wit and the line's ability to traverse itself through irony. The poem does not suffer from any tedium and in an era of sharp reviewers and popular criticism, "the essay" holds its own.
