The Dunciad: In Four Books
This is a new edition of The Dunciad in Four Books of 1743, the culmination of the series of Dunciads which Alexander Pope produced over the last decade and a half of his life. It comprises not only a poem, but also a mass of authorial annotation and appendices, and this new edition is the only one available which gives all the verse and the prose in a clearly laid-out form, with a full modern commentary.
