It includes poems by Samuel Johnson, Thomas Gray, David Garrick, Lady Mary Wortley Montague, Horace Walpole, Joseph and Thomas Warton, James Thomson, Elizabeth Carter, Pope himself, and many others. The Collection of Poemsis an invaluable index of literary culture in the eighteenth century, and yet despite its great popularity and influence, it has not been in print for more than two hundred years.
