A Contradiction Still: Representations of Women in the Poetry of Alexander Pope

Manchester University Press, 1998 - 245 pages
This text offers a critique of the views concerning gender and gender roles expressed or implied in Pope's poetry. Knellwolf approaches Pope's stylistic complexity revealing it as an effect of his engagement with a historical situation in which the position of women was one of the most prominent sources of ideological conflict. She provides a discussion of Pope's poetic language and relates it to the wider context of publication in which male writers defended the masculine privilege of literary authorship against intellectual women.
