He acknowledged Dryden as his poetic master and dedicated his whole life to literature. He was also influenced by Boileau, the French poet and critic. His popularity rests on his two very famous works- ‘Essay on Criticism’ and ‘Rape of the Lock’. The AP students’ knowledge and familiarity of this writer is sought to be assessed by this short test.
