Very useful description of the poem The Rape of the Lock & its composer Alexander Pope

First complete edition and first separate publication of Pope's mock-heroic masterpiece; the 1st edition to contain all five cantos of the poem. Illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and five plates, as well as a later portrait of Arabella Fermor Inserted opposite the dedication. Pope was initially inspired to compose The Rape of the Lock in order to resolve a quarrel that arose between the Fermor and Petre families after Robert lord Petre snipped a lock of Arabella Fermor's hair.

Hoping to ease the animosity between the two families through playful humor, Pope, with Arabella Fermor's permission, first published The Rape of the Lock in two cantos in Lintott's "Miscellaneous Poems and Translations" in Pope's genius, however, is fully displayed in the five-canto version of the poem in which he expands the sketch to include divine machinery, albeit on the miniature scale of sylphs and gnomes.
