But Alexander Pope is nothing if not a bit ridiculous. And he uses just such an occasion-someone cutting off a friend's lock of hair-to craft this long, funny, famous poem, The Rape of the Lock. We know: nowadays the word "rape" usually describes a horrific situation at which laughing is strictly-and rightly-forbidden. But back in 1714, when Pope published The Rape of the Lock, the term "rape" had a broader definition. With the expanded version, Pope succeeded in reuniting his friends and in achieving poetic fame: The Rape of the Lock was a smash hit throughout his lifetime and became one of his most famous and best-loved poems. It was also his most light-hearted (coincidence?). As he got older and more involved in politics, his outlook (and his poetic satires) got a lot more bitter and made him many enemies.
