The history of Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia by Samuel Johnson( Book )

423 editions published between 1759 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 5,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnson's adaptation of the popular oriental tale displays his usual wit and perceptiveness; sceptical and probing, his tale nevertheless suggests that wisdom and self-knowledge need not be entirely beyond reach. This new edition relates Rasselas to Johnson's life and thought and to politics, society, and the global context of the Seven Years War. --from publisher description

Rasselas, prince of Abyssinia : a tale by Samuel Johnson( Book )

157 editions published between 1803 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His chief amusement was to picture to himself that world which he had never seen, to place himself in various conditions, to be entangled in imaginary difficulties, and to be engaged in wild adventures ... The other great book by the man who wrote the dictionary: THis is Dr. Johnson's beautiful, engaging, and ultimately inspiring story of a royal brother and sister who escape the castle and, traveling in disguise, search for a way to feel more useful to society. It leads to a years-long adventure amongst poor people and rich men, great intellectuals and merchants, holy men and ruthless warriors. It is an eye-opening experience that shakes the siblings to their core and ultimately turns into the most sublimely wise and moving works that Johnson ever wrote, not to mention a masterpiece of English literature

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
