Satire Forum

In part 1 of the lecture we learn about Alexander Pope buying a puppy for the Prince of Wales and we heard a section of Cecilia read. This discussion forum asks two questions:. 

1) Pope puts a very specific inscription on the collar (return to the end of part 1 to re-listen if you like). Why is the inscription funny?

2) Is the quote from Cecilia playful Horatian satire or the more serious Juvenalian satire of moral indignation?

Please explain both of your answers
