Question 2 Explanation: 

Alexander Pope, “An Essay on Criticism”

You then whose judgment the right course would steer, Know well each ancient’s proper character; His fable, subject, scope in every page; Religion, country, genius of his age: Without all these at once before your eyes, Cavil you may, but never criticize. Be Homer’s works your study and delight, Read them by day, and meditate by night; Thence form your judgment, thence your maxims bring, And trace the Muses upward to their spring. Still with itself compared, his text peruse; And let your comment be the Mantuan Muse.
