The eternal lament of Alexander Pope

Last night, I went to see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind the latest Charlie Kaufman movie starring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet. I liked it a lot. It challenges the viewer and entertains. But the title refers to a poem by Alexander Pope and I wanted to know more about it. This is a good feature from the Chicago Tribune about "the eternal lament of Alexander Pope." I wish I had read it before I saw the movie. If you haven't seen the movie, I'd recommend it, although I had a hard time finding a theatre around here that was showing it.

Here's a link to the entire poem courtesy of the University of Toronto.
