This edition reissue of Herbert Morris Bower’s beautiful verse translation, the only complete English version of the poem, is enriched by facing original text and extra end notes. Parini’s satirical description of a lazy young nobleman’s fashionable day, from his awakening late in the morning to the fatuous pleasures that noon and evening bring, has been often compared to The Rape of the Lock, and displays the same gentle tone, pointed wit, and enduring charm of Pope’s masterpiece.
