810 editions published between 1759 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 6,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lives of the poets : a selection by Samuel Johnson( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last of his major writings, Samuel Johnson looked back over the previous two centuries of English literature in order to describe the personalities as well as the achievements of the leading English poets. The major Lives -- of Milton, Dryden, Swift, and Pope -- are memorable cameos of the life of writing in which Johnson is as attentive to human frailty as to literary prowess. The shorter Lives preserve some of Johnson's most piercing, critical judgements. Unsentimental, opinionated, and quotable, The Lives of the Poets continues to influence the reputations of the writers concerned. It is one of the greatest works of English criticism, but also one of the must humanly diverting. - Back cover
