He was a leading poet. Reading his poetry suites my head for his ryhmes are mind blowing and his lines just a summary of the world in an all knowing enscrypted scroll.
Pope's publisher, James Roberts, died ten years after Pope but his epitaph has been suggested as a work by Pope: Let some by heralds blazon'd shine, And backwards trace their ancient line; From heaps of geld let others raise A monument of flatt'ring praise; Let others boast their pomp and state, Of merit void, ignobly great: , One truth, o'er these remains below Inscrib'd, more honour will bestow, Than lineage, wealth, or grandeur can; ' Here lies interr'd an honest man.'
