Overview

Pope's complex 1713 poem has been widely wielded in contemporary debate about colonialism and the nature of crime and society in Britain. Rogers' detailed analysis takes another tack, looking at the way the poem recalls earlier forms of royal panegyric and artistic pageantry, and how it uses the idiom of allegory to produce an array of neo-Renaissance effects that might support the faltering Stuart dynasty. Rogers (liberal arts, U. of South Florida) writes that his overall aim is to offer a connected study of the poem that devotes itself to the artistic legacy of the Stuarts rather than a political narrative of their fall.
