Ideals as innocent as these expressed by Alexander Pope''s 'Ode On Solitude' are made complex for me by their antithesis, as expressed in the greater body of his worldly satire. I love the poem, just as I love watching 'Escape to the Country' from the comforts of my city home: long may the Pastoral genre continue to be.
Such ideals, so fluently expressed by Alexander Pope, are so much the antithesis of his worldly satire as to appear hollow. I love this poem, just as I adore watching 'Escape to the Country' from the comfort of my city home.
Long live the pastoral genre.
