dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines Pope's 1743 Dunciad as a vision of serious moral decay couched in the imagery and language of the apocalyptic. It asserts a reading of the poem as an eschatalogical text in which the decline of taste emblematizes the decline of morality and in which chaos is finally ascendant, subsuming the possibility of meaning into the "deluge of authors [that] cover'd the land."en_US
