N preparing the present edition of 1 Pope's Poems, no pains have been le spared to make the text as accurate 249 as possible. The labours of the late Mr. Carruthers, Professor Ward, and Messrs. Elwin and Courthope, have considerably lightened the Editor's task.
Pope's own notes are distinguished by the initial P., and where notes are taken from previous editions, due acknowledgment is made. Those which are unsigned are the Editor's own.
In the matter of orthography it has been thought best to conform as much as possible to modern usage, and also to avoid the apostrophe where the metre was not endangered by so doing.
