Personally, I enjoyed reading Pope from the first time that I read him in school. I think anyone who likes poetry should read him. His satire is sublime. If for nothing else in this book, you must read "The Rape of the Lock".
But poetry isn't the only thing in this book. You get some incite into his own ideas about poetry and his own take on life from the preface and the explanatory notes at the beginning of the book and his own notations. There is a lot to absorb in this book. Some readers may not be too keen to the language of the period. I've noticed that complaint from some readers of period pieces. Just keep that in mind.
This is also an interesting take on the period of time that Pope lived in.
I realize that someone else might not be so inclined to like his works, but since it is free, you can always delete it from your library.
Highly recommended for the poetry lover and essay enthusiast. I know they will enjoy the book.
We're talking about a poetic form that is not much written in any more, but stands as a beacon of what can be done with meter, rhyme and structure. Love it. Timeless.
