1. Do you feel that the poem is humorous? Why or why not? Explain your answer thoroughly.
2. Why do you think Pope included spirits, gnomes, sylphs, etc. in the poem? Would the reader react the same way if these characters were not included? Make an argument about whether you think they are essential in some way, or are unnecessary.
The Rape of the Lock is a mock-heroic narrative poem written by Alexander Pope, first published anonymously in Lintot’s Miscellany in May 1712 in two cantos (334 lines), but then revised, expanded and reissued under Pope’s name on March 2, 1714, in a much-expanded 5-canto version (794 lines). The final form was available in 1717 with the addition of Clarissa’s speech on good humour.
