Alexander Pope (May 21, 1688 - May 30, 1744), was called "The Wicked Wasp of Twickenham" for his stinging literary satires of his fellow writers. He modelled himself after the great Classical poets, such as Homer and Virgil, and wrote in a highly polished verse, often in a didactic or satirical vein. The greatest poet genius of his day, he perfected the heroic couplet, which is still in use today. Because of a spinal deformity from childhood, he was only 4'6" tall.
