“Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.”

― Alexander Pope

 

Alexander Pope was one the most famous and best English poets of all time, who should be included with Shakespeare as the highest regarded English literary figures. His work ‘The Dunciad’ is an epic poem that tells the story of a goddess who oversees the downfall of Great Britain.

 

According to sources, there is confusion surrounding the earliest publications of this work; however, publisher Lawton Gilliver released 1728 editions under a pseudonym that were never intended to be mass-published. This edition was the first that included Gilliver’s name and includes the ‘owl’ plate bound at book two, rather than the frontispiece. The ‘ass’ plate is bound as a frontis in this volume.
