Well, we've been studying 'The Restoration Period' for about 2 weeks now and a question had been thrown during one of the lectures. It was about the differences between Dryden and Alexander Pope as they both were Satirists.
I have got some points on what differentiate between the two and suggestions and points would help and be appreciated.
Well, Dryden is said to have set the fashion of the Restoration Period. He wrote satires on based on events happened at the time and always serious. Anyway, the only thing I can think of is that both of them are poets, but Pope usessuch trivial events to describe, or rather redicule society at the time, while Dryden uses references from the Bible to form a satire in order to visualize what is on his mind.
People, please, if you have any point or suggestion regarding those poets, I will be more than glad to read it....
