Publisher Description

An Essay on Criticism by Alexander Pope and narrated by Denis Daly 

First published in 1711, An Essay on Criticism was one of Pope's earliest major poems. As the title suggests, it is an exploration of what Pope considered to be the essential aspects of good critical writing. 

As he says: 

A perfect judge will read each work of wit 

With the same spirit that its author writ 

Survey the whole nor seek slight faults to find 

Where nature moves and rapture warms the mind. It contains one of the most famous - and frequently misquoted - lines in English poetry: 

A little learning is a dangerous thing (Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring)
