Catherine Ingrassia, Claudia N. Thomas
Bucknell University Press, 2000 - 254 páginas
These essays teach Pope's Dunciad from a variety of perspectives. Contributors issues including Pope's psychosexual development, his antipathy to opera, Pope's centrality in the debates over the often-gendered nature of literary labor, and his repudiation in Book IV of The Dunciad of the concepts of masculine conduct from which he was excluded, the reconstruction of Pope's body and persona in Edmund Curll's pamphlets responding to the 1728 Dunciad, and Pope's adaptation of the Renaissance satirist's "Rabelaisian" imagery and purposes.
