Pope the Poet





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

passage with or without a note of interrogation. Pope rather arrogantly

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.
