848 editions published between 1759 and 2012 in 19 languages and held by 7,166 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

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

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 101 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
