Question description

Which stanza from "The Rape of the Lock" by Alexander Pope indicates that the poem is meant to mock the form of the heroic epic?

One speaks the glory of the British Queen,
And one describes a charming Indian screen;
A third interprets motions, looks, and eyes;
At ev'ry word a reputation dies.

The Knave of Diamonds tries his wily arts,
And wins (oh shameful chance!) the Queen of Hearts.
At this, the blood the virgin's cheek forsook,
A livid paleness spreads o'er all her look;

"To arms, to arms!" the fierce Virago cries,
And swift as lightning to the combat flies.
All side in parties, and begin th' attack; 
Fans clap, silks rustle, and tough whalebones crack;

Think not, when Woman's transient breath is fled 
That all her vanities at once are dead; 
Succeeding vanities she still regards, 
And tho' she plays no more, o'erlooks the cards.
