Although has been written on Pope's translation of the Iliad, little has been written directly on his commentary, which comprise more than half of Pope's work. This study seeks to correct this neglect and argues that Pope's commentary is a vital part of his Iliad. I examine Pope's place among English and French poets and commentators, the epic tradition, and Pope's understanding of the commentator's role.
