Alexander Popery

AlexanderPopery Photo Alexander Pope was a master of the rhyming couplet - and, generally, most of what we remember from his long poetical essays is in this form. Therefore, it seems natural that a quiz about Pope should be of the type "what is the next line?" or "complete the couplet." It is also natural to invent the alternative second lines (to avoid the tedium of searching for real poems with comparable lines). Thus, I am setting myself against Alexander Pope's genius. Can I fool enough of you into choosing one of my lines, instead of his?

Let's put it to the test!

[Note - one is not a rhyming couplet, although it should be well-enough known!]

Brilliant. Many of the wrong answers are better than Pope's originals. Well done!
