Alexander Pope's Grave Marker. At the age of twelve Pope contracted an illness (possibly Pott's disease) which severely restricted his growth. As a grown man he was only 4 foot, 6 inches tall. With money earned from his translations of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey Pope took on the lease of a villa at Crossdeep, Twickenham in 1719. He spent considerable time and money on improving the house and redesigning the gardens.

His father worked as a linen merchant. He had a Catholic upbringing. Ironically, young Pope was born at a time when rights of the Catholics to teaching, education, voting and holding public office was banned due to the enactment to the Test Acts which uplifted the status of the Church of England. As such, he received much of his education at home. It was only in 1698 that he attended Twyford School. Written in a heroic couplet style, which was a developing genre of poetry then, the work was written as a response to whether poetry should written in a style that is natural or follow the predetermined rules of the classical works. Same year, he made friends with Tory writers John Gay, Jonathan Swift, Thomas Parnell and John Arbuthnot. Together with them, he formed the satirical Scriblerus Club.
