Catalogue Note

A charming poem contrasting life at court and life in the country, concocted between Swift and Pope. Foxon states that "it is generally agreed that the original idea was Swift's, but that the writing is largely by Pope". "Bounce" was the name of Pope's great dane, which he kept at Twickenham, whilst "Fop" belonged to Lady Suffolk.
