ALEXANDER , POPE,

WITH HIS LAST
CORRECTIONS, ADDITIONS,

AND
IMPROVEMENTS.

FROM THE TEXT OF DR. WARBURTON,

· WITH THE LIFE OF THE AUTHOR.

VOL. II.

Cooke's Edition.

But see, at length, the British Genius smile,
And show'r her bounties o'er her favour'd isle:
Behold, for POPE she twines the laurel crown,
And centres ev'ry poet's pow'r in one...
Each Muse for thee with kind contention strove,
For thee the Graces left th' Idalian grove,
With watchful fondness o'er thy cradle hung,
Attun'd thy voice, and form's thy infant tongue.

Brown
