The Battle of the Poets 1725
A poem attacking some of the leading authors of the time, including Swift and Pope. Later in his Dunciad, Pope had a dig at Cooke. For his translation of Hesiod into rhymed couplets Cooke became knowed as “Hesiod Cooke”; from 1741 he edited The Craftsman.
A Demonstration of the Will of God by the Light of Nature 1733
A defence of deism in which Cooke asked his readers to turn away from the prejudices of a Christian education and to adopt ?no other Guide but Nature?, a guide he called ?the Rule of Right?.
