The Works of Alexander Pope, Vol. 6 free pdf Excerpt from The Works of Alexander Pope, Vol. 6 When Pope's Letters were published, 1 as they had relation to recent facts, and persons either then living or not yet forgotten, they may be supposed to have found readers- but, as the facts were minute, and the characters, being either private or literary, were little known, or little regarded, they awaked no popular kindness or resentment- the book never became much the subject of conversation- some read it as a contemporary history, and some perhaps as a model of epistolary language- but those who read it did not talk of it. Not much therefore was added by it to fame or envy, nor do I remember that it produced either public praise, or public censure. Pope is seen in this collection as connected with the other contemporary wits, and certainly suffers no disgrace in the comparison: but it must be remembered that he had the power of favouring himself- he might have originally had publication in his mind, and have written with care, or have afterwards selected those which he had most happily conceived, or most diligently laboured, and I know not whether there does not appear something more studied and artificial in his productions than the rest, except one long letter by Bolingbroke, composed with all the skill and industry of a professed author. It is indeed not easy to distinguish affectation from habit- he that has once studiously formed a style, rarely writes afterwards with complete ease. Pope may be said to write always with his reputation in his head- Swift perhaps like a man who remembered that he was writing to Pope- but Arbuthnot like one who lets thoughts drop from his pen as they rise into his mind. Of Pope's social qualities, if an estimate be made from his letters, an opinion too favourable cannot easily be formed- they exhibit a perpetual and unclouded effulgence of general benevolence, and particular fondness. There is nothing but liberality, gratitude, constancy, and tenderness. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
