The Rape of the Lock and Other Poems Audiobook

Written by : Alexander Pope
Read by: Emilia Fox

The unabridged audio book The Rape of  The  Lock satirises a petty squabble over the theft of a lock of hair as recounted to Alexander Pope by a friend.   Pope wrote a mock-heroic narrative  parodying the gods and goddesses of  the epic style. Although comic at times, Pope never loses sight of the fragile nature of beauty.

Alexander Pope (1688-1744) is considered by many to be the greatest poet of the eighteenth century and is the third most quoted writer after Shakespeare and Tennyson.

Emilia Fox has recorded this specially selected audio book of some of Pope’s best loved poems for Silksoundbooks, bringing her own love of the works to her readings.
