1741 ENGLISH POETRY 1579-1830: SPENSER AND THE TRADITION

Alexander Pope

Anonymous, "Epitaph for Mr. Pope" Publick Register (10 January 1741) 40.



Here lies the Master of Satyrick Art,
If thou art wicked, Traveller, depart:
If thou art wise and virtuous, freely mourn,
Sit boldly down, nay sleep upon his Urn.
