Pope the Poet

Anecdotes Home






This celebrated poet is said to have been once severely
retorted upon. A question arose in company respecting the reading of a

asked one gentleman if he knew what a note of interrogation was. "Yes, sir:
it is _a little crooked thing that asks questions_." Pope was little and
deformed.
