Please read Pope’s ‘The Rape of the lock’ (the five cantos) and compare with the following 3 question below
1) Please read Mohit Ray’s chapter on the poem carefully, and consider whether you think his focus on a Foucauldian reading of sexuality in the poem offers a sufficient key to unlock its treasures…. Does he ever go “too far” in his detection of secondary sexual innuendo in the poem (and how far is “too far” anyway)?
2) Now look at Ellen Pollak’s earlier feisty intervention and decide if you feeling her argument is stronger than Ray’s.
3) Now consider Brean Hammond’s response to gendered and feminist readings on his own terms: to what extent does his interpretation temper and balance Ray and Pollak’s views? (NB It’s a wide-ranging chapter; the analysis of Rape of the Lock comes on pages 1660-71, so you are welcome to focus on that section)
