Description

Lives of The Poets

by Samuel Johnson

Fifty-two short biographies with critical appraisals of Eighteenth-century poets,

including John Milton, John Dryden, Alexander Pope, Joseph Addison, Jonathan Swift, and Thomas Gray.

About The Author:

Samuel Johnson [1709-1784], often referred to as Dr. Johnson although he attended Pembroke College, Oxford for just over a year, has been described as "arguably the most distinguished man of letters in English history".

He is also the subject of James Boswell's "Life of Samuel Johnson", "the most famous single work of biographical art in the whole of literature".

Samuel Johnson compiled "A Dictionary of the English Language" (1755), "one of the greatest single achievements of scholarship".

Johnson's Dictionary was the most authoritative English dictionary until the "Oxford English Dictionary" was published 173 years later. The Dictionary "easily ranks as one of the greatest single achievements of scholarship, and probably the greatest ever performed by one individual who labored under anything like the disadvantages in a comparable length of time", claimed Walter Jackson Bate.

Reviews:

"A crucial century and a half in English literature ... [a] compendious story of a whole important age in English literature, told by a great man, and in a performance which is itself a piece of English literature of the first class." Matthew Arnold
