Rogers accumulates historical details-contextual information-from which he extrapolates the satirists' meanings and intentions. By doing so, he illuminates the works. Rogers points out what "has passed unobserved" (12), corrects the "misreading of a literary joke" (48), explicates and deciphers "neglected allusions" (55) and "embedded cultural allusions" (59), and fills in what has been "missed" (19, 63, 78) or has languished "unexplained" (281).

The Epistle to Dr. Arbuthnot is a satire in poetic form written by Alexander Pope and addressed to his friend John Arbuthnot, a physician. It was first published in 1735 and composed in 1734, when Pope learned that Arbuthnot was dying. Pope described it as a memorial of their friendship. It has been called Pope's "most directly autobiographical work", in which he defends his practice in the genre of satire and attacks those who had been his opponents and rivals throughout his career.

Documenting Eighteenth Century Satire provides a historicized view of Augustan satire, through detailed readings of individual works. It aims to show how these satires can be documented in various ways to reveal richer meanings. The book ranges across different modes of satire, in poetry, prose and drama. It covers some of the best known works of eighteenth-century British literature, including The Rape of the Lock, The Dunciad, and The Beggar s Opera. In addition it deals with less familiar but important texts, including Gay s Trivia, Pope s Epistle to Miss Blount, and Swift s poem on Sid Hamet, as well as works of great literary merit which have been unduly neglected, including Pope s Duke upon Duke and Swift s The Bubble. One essay offers the first full interpretation and edition of a poem that surfaced in the 1970s, still virtually unknown, written by Pope and/or Gay. Another describes a previously unsuspected hoax by the Scriblerians on the quest for the longitude, while one more finds an unsuspected, but close, link between poems by Pope and Pushkin. Sources are drawn from numerous unpublished documents (wills, private letters, inventories, estate deeds, marriage contracts and private correspondence). Extensive use is made of contemporary newspapers, magazines and pamphlets. Most of these have not been quarried heavily (if at all) before. Some essays are completely new while others have been extensively revised for this book.
