Alexander Pope: Born during the year of the Glorious Revolution, Alexander Pope was a Tory, Catholic, tiny hunch-backed man, fruitlessly in love with Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. In Jack Lynch's words, he was also "most famous English poet of the first half of the eighteenth century." Major works include The Dunciad, The Rape of the Lock, and Essay on Criticism.
