ABSTRACT
The article offers poetry criticism of "Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot," a satire in poetic form by English poet Alexander Pope. It addresses the poem's themes of the uselessness of poetic form and the growth of Pope as a satiric poet. Topics include Pope's perspectives on verse satire, the role of the poem in presenting a sort of portrait of the life of Pope, and the theme of parenthood in light of Pope's deformity and lack of a wife.
