An Essay on Criticism was the first major poem written by the English writer Alexander Pope (1688-1744). However, despite the title, the poem is not as much an original analysis as it is a compilation of Pope's various literary opinions. A reading of the poem makes it clear that he is addressing not so much the ingenuous reader as the intending writer. It is written in a type of rhyming verse called heroic couplets.

This Reading Opened the Poem to Me

Very vivid reading with a good (but not distracting) personality coming through. I was lost trying to digest this poem before hearing this recording. The pauses are well placed and the occassional laughter in the voice add a lot to the understanding. Really loved it and feel indebted to it.
