The Grub Street Project: The Rape of the Lock (1714), ed. Allison Muri

On March 4, 1714, Bernard Lintot published Alexander Pope’s The Rape of the Lock in five cantos. Associate Professor Allison Muri (Department of English, University of Saskatchewan) is the editor of this new online edition in honour of this anniversary:

Dr. Muri will be adding notes over the next few months, and hopes her online edition of Pope’s The Rape of the Lock may be of use to some in teaching the poem and studying its plates in the near future. The images (provided by McMaster’s William Ready Division of Archives & Research Collections) are slow to load because they’re very high resolution.
