|Pope read Gulliver's Travels on its publication and was inspired to write a poem for every book.|
I. Ode to Quinbus Flestrin
I like the way the poem is short to reflect the shortness of the people. I also appreciate the way it fleshes out the fears of the Lilliputians.
|II. The Lamentation of Glumdalclitch for the Loss of Grildrig|
Poems Suggested by Gulliver
III. To Mr. Lemuel Gulliver
|IV. Mary Gulliver to Captain Lemuel Gulliver|
I enjoy these little poems, I love how the Scriblerans engage with each other's work. I also enjoyed how we get to see parts of the story from outside of Gulliver's perspective. Soon I will be talking about 'Mistress Masham's Repose', which I have been greatly enjoying.
