47 of 48 people found the following review helpful By Molly the Cat on May 3, 1998
Format: Paperback
This one-volume reprint of all the authentic original poems of Alexander Pope, first published in 1963, derives from the Twickenham Edition, the recognized standard text of Pope's poetry. It is exhaustive, even down to containing early versions of lines like the verses on "Atticus" which ended up years later in the "Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot," and reprints both the "Tibbald" and "Cibber" versions of the "Dunciad." It also has a great deal of useful editorial annotation, though not so much as to overwhelm or supplant Pope's own text and frequent notes. Highly recommended to all who love Pope's verse.

15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Paul D. Harmon on December 6, 2009
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Now, when I say "worthless edition" I do not at all refer to the Twickenham version of Mr. Pope's poetry, which is beyond excellent, but rather to the Kindle version of the Twickenham version, which one might have naively assumed would be the same. As I'm sure others have noticed, books on Kindle sometimes have a few mistakes in them. I do not consider this a very big deal in general, and I'm hardly about to complain about it in the free or ninety-nine cent books.

However, there are literally hundreds and hundreds of confusing errors in the Kindle edition of this book, which absolutely do not appear in its ink-and-paper incarnation. Some of them, such as one letter for another when the text is italicized, are consistent, but most are totally random. I'm familiar enough with the poetry that I'm rarely slowed down by these myself, but anyone who has not carefully read it before will be constantly baffled: an erroneous letter typically forms a different word, a word which makes absolutely no sense in the context, thus forcing you to guess at the real one, a frustrating exercise, to be sure, and one that must be repeated every few pages at the very least.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The kindle version is very poorly done. In particular, the notes - essential for following Pope's allusions, many of which were pretty obscure even when they were first published two and a half centuries ago - are jumbled together en mass at the end of the book, without any links to the text. They are essentially unusable, and so is the book. It's not that the publisher didn't know how to link, as there are hyperlinks for the indexes of titles and first lines. But for the all-important notes, that was apparently too much trouble. Funny thing is, they've priced this edition like a professional work, rather than the public domain hackwork that it more nearly resembles.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Stanley Crowe TOP 1000 REVIEWER on March 29, 2013
Format: Paperback
Browsing in my local bookstore this afternoon, I was amazed to see -- in Greenville, SC -- the Yale paperback of the one-volume "Twickenham" edition of the works of Alexander Pope, edited by John Butt. Butt had completed work on the full multi-volume edition, of which he was General Editor, by the time I arrived at Edinburgh in 1962 as a first year undergraduate, and he was working on the Oxford History of English Literature volume that focused on the 18th Century. Butt died, at the age of 59, in the Fall of 1965, my final year, having succumbed to a degenerative muscular disorder of which there was no sign when he lectured to us freshmen on various topics, including ballads, and even sang, unaccompanied, one or two. He struck us as a charming and gracious man who obviously loved talking about the literature that interested him.

The fact that the Twickenham text is still in print is testimony to the quality of his editorial work. As another reviewer notes, it's a handsome book, containing all the Pope texts except for the translations of Homer. There are copious notes, as there have to be for a writer so immersed in the culture and politics (literary and otherwise) of his time, but readers who are seriously interested in Pope will find the extensiveness of the notes (which are usefully at the bottoms of the pages of text to which they refer) one of the good reasons for getting this volume. It's poignant to think that I enjoy good health at an age that a great scholar like Butt didn't live to see, but this edition is a worthy monument to him.

Format: Paperback
Milton, Shakespeare, Wordsworth, and Pope, to me are the "Big Four" English bards.
This volume is not the complete text of all extent works, but ahs the vast majority of Pope's best compositions. The binding is apprpriate to the contents inside- in that is i substantial and will last a long time.
Thanks- Nick
