Thus, in the story, it appears that Wilde is trying to make the argument that, although respectability, morality and wealth are of the utmost importance to Victorian society, the reality is that everyone kept secrets from one another to save face in the public eye. In addition, Dr. Jekyll not only changes his name to Hyde, but is also stripped of the title of doctor.

Perfection in Pope’s An Essay on Man

- Alexander Pope envisioned a universe perfect by definition. Every facet of this universe is designed solely for its place in the hierarchy of existence, and is in fact perfect for its particular station. This idea of perfection in completeness is encompassed in the famous concluding words of the first epistle of Pope’s An Essay on Man: “Whatever IS, is RIGHT.” This aphorism, however, belies the effort Pope took to solidify his assertion. In order to substantiate his idea of a perfectly structured universe, Pope delineates—in extremely structured and formal heroic verse—an argument positing the failure of human reason, fettered as it is by ignorance and pride, in obtaining a proper idea of ma...   [tags: An Essay on Man]
