The Rape of the Lock, Part 2

Publication Date: March 6, 2012

Chapter: English Literature During The Restoration And The Eighteenth Century

I think this highlights one thing: even in 1714, women probably used too much makeup. In their case, however, it was probably to draw your attention away from the smell.

"Inferior priestess" is an insult straight out of the book, and it strikes as being rather cruel, if not archaically hilarious.

Author: Alexander Pope • Year: 1714 • Info: Wikipedia
