Samuel Johnson. Life & Times Series. - Paperback

2004, ISBN: 1904341810

ID: 10098

Kartoniert, Paperback, 160 S., durchgehend mit farbigen und s/w Textillustrationen; Format: 20,5 x 13 cm;, Zustand: sehr gut, verlagsfrisch. - Johnson was born in Lichfield, England, on September 18, 1709; his father Michael was a bookseller. As a young man, Johnson tried his hand at a career as a schoolmaster, and was unsuccessful. In 1737 he went to London to seek his fortune, and found employment as a writer for various periodicals. Johnson obtained some notice with his works London (1738) and The Vanity of Human Wishes (1749) -- both of which are considered great poems -- but his efforts in the 1750's are part of why he's considered a titan. This decade saw the creation of his Dictionary (1755), his Rambler essays (1750-52), his Idler essays (1758-60), and Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia (1759). Johnson received a government pension in 1762. Johnson's output includes a complete edition of Shakespeare; a number of frequently cited political tracts; sermons; a description of his 1773 tour to Scotland with Boswell, with considerable discussion of the change of an era; and a series of biographies of numerous British poets (The Lives of the Poets), commissioned to accompany reprints of each poet's works. Johnson died on December 13, 1784. Versand D: 1,00 EUR Biografie, [PU:Haus Publishing, London 2004,]

A poet, essayist, critic, journalist and lexicographer, Johnson was formidably productive and wide-ranging. He was also a legendary wit and conversationalist, whose sharp-tongued pronouncements and many eccentricities are well recorded in Boswell's classic Life. In 1755, he published the first proper dictionary of the English language, defining some 40,000 words with great verve. (In it, he defined a lexicographer as a 'harmless drudge'.) His essays on Shakespeare, his Lives of the Poets and his extensive periodical essays were all seminal works in their field and his philosophical romance Rasselas (1759) is as pungent today as ever. 192 pp. Englisch
