The following comment refers to the Kindle edition of "An Essay on Criticism" by Alexander Pope with introductory and explanatory notes, produced by Ted Garvin, David Garcia and the Online Distributed Proofreading Team.
38 pages where every verse is worth its words, however hard some of the references might appear nowadays. Pope wrote it when what we think in term of ancient classics were not so old, and not yet swept away and submerged by tide after tide of new works, making it difficult for the new generations to find the time to delve into the wit of the past. "Wit", a word that Pope does use often in this work and which deserves a study of its own due to the multiple layers of meaning it discloses. Still, this edition has the merit to offer an interactive explanation of the more or less obscure quotations, adding to the gratification the reader can derive.
Many facets of criticism are explored and expounded by Pope, making them appear illuminating, convincing and, what matters most, simple in their brevity.
Few pages that deserves to be mulled over several times to be appreciated even more.
And last, but not the least, Amazon offers this edition at zero cost. True, it is available free on line, but it is an honest move by Amazon to declare it and offer it all the same in its catalogue.

If you expect to get more features or content than the free version of Essay on Criticism, you will be disappointed. This is the gutenberg.com version, with the same introduction and oddly written notes. Also worth noting is that most of Pope's punctuation is missing. The only difference I found between the two editions is that this one has a portrait of Pope on the cover.
Save your dollar.

This work is one you should own on Kindle, even if you have a paper copy, as it is "dirt cheap" , at $.99. Contrary to the earlier reviewer, this edition is not free. I rarely pick the free edition, if there is also a very inexpensive edition available as well. The free edition almost invariably has flaws, and no extra features such as commentary. It is simply Pope's text. But it is a very clean text, without the usual detritis of a poor paper to electronic conversion. Be aware that there is a newer Kindle version, with a different cover (a painting of Pope) at $.99, but with the addition of an introduction written by a modern writer. I suggest you buy that edition.
