John Richardson - Defending the Self: Pope and His Horatian Poems | JSTOR: The Modern Language Review, Vol. 95, No. 3 (Jul., 2000), pp. 623-633
Alexander Pope's self-representations in his Horatian poems involve defence of the self as well as literary self-defence. The apparent egotism is a way of defining and protecting identity against the threats of what he saw as a corrupt society. The drama of the poems, which paradoxically sometimes exposes egotism, act as a second kind of self-defence by allowing the poet to withdraw in imagination from the struggle. -- helpful re the various fashions in Pope bashing and bibliography -- downloaded pdf to Note
