Product Description

Dryden?s original poem of 1687 is published in parallel alongside a Latin translation attributed to Robert Ward (see Copec). At the close of the poem the translator adds a note in Latin to the effect that Alexander Pope?s later poem of the same title had been previously translated into Latin by Christopher Smart [1743]. The note is signed off ?R.W.?
