Follows Boswell's life from 1769, the year of his marriage, until Boswell's death in 1795, the period of Boswell's triumphs as a writer. In the process the author recounts the comings and goings of the great and near-great artistic and political figures of London in the Age of Reason. Theorist Edmund Burke, painter Joshua Reynolds, politician William Pitt, actor David Garrick, and, of course, the incomparable Dr. Johnson all move in and out of Boswell's life.

An essay on man by Alexander Pope( Book )

9 editions published between 1965 and 1988 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Science of Human Nature is, like all other Sciences, reduced to a few, clear points; There are not many certain Truths in this World. It is therefore in the Anatomy of the Mind, as in that of the Body, more Good will accrue to mankind by attending to the large, open, and perceptible parts, than by studying too much such finer nerves and vessels as will for ever escape our observation. The Essay on Man, to use the Author's own words, is a perfect system of ethics, in which definition he included religion. hence it is that the first Epistle regards man with respect to the Lord and governor of the universe; as the second, with respect to himself; the third, to society, and the fourth to happiness. Having therefore formed and finished his Essay in this view, he was much mortified whenever he found it considered in any other; or as a part and introduction only to a larger work. Concerning the universal prayer, which concludes the Essay, the author composed that prayer as the sum of all, to show that his system was founded in free will and terminated in piety. This edition includes numerous responses and answers to Pope's Essay on man"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)

Samuel Johnson: Selected Poetry and Prose by Frank Brady( Book )

6 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a major new selection of Samuel Johnson's best work, delightfully introduced by W. K. Wimsatt and scrupulously annotated by Frank Brady and Mr. Wimsatt. Samuel Johnson, the only writer in English since the Renaissance to give his name to a literary period, was the center of English letters in his time. He was Dictionary Johnson, the lexicographer who had single-handedly settled the English language (it was hoped) on a firm basis; he was the author of a handful of fine poems, including two of the most remarkable satires of the century; he was a moralist whose Rambler and Idler essays, and novel-of-ideas Rasselas, provided a searching view of men and matters. And in his final years he produced his greatest work, that extraordinary combination of biography and criticism which came to be known as the Lives of the Poets. This first extensive anthology of Johnson's writings to be published in many years emphasizes Johnson the writer. It responds to those aspects of Johnson's work of special interest to modern readers. It comprises a selection of Johnson's letters, all of his major poems (including London ), Rasselas, twenty-one Rambler, nineteen Idlers, the Prefaces to the Dictionary and to the edition of Shakespeare, and the following Lives of the Poets: Cowley, Milton, Swift, Pope, Savage, Collins, and Gray. All these works are extensively annotated and printed complete. Mr. Wimsatt, one of the outstanding Johnsonians of this century, provides in his Introduction a clear, connected biographical account of Johnson, stressing his writings. An up-to-date bibliography is also included. Johnson's varied accomplishments--as poet, as moralist, as biographer, as critic--are all amply represented
