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

746 editions published between 1759 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 9,398 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 letters of Samuel Johnson by Samuel Johnson( )

45 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 1,801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Hyde Edition offers scores of texts transcribed for the first time from the original documents a feature of special importance in the case of Johnson's revealing letters to Hester Thrale, many of which have been available only in expurgated form. The Hyde Edition is also the first systematically to record substantive deletions, which can yield intimate knowledge of Johnson's stylistic procedures, mental habits, and chains of association. Furthermore, its ownership credits document the current disposition of the manuscripts, hundreds of which have changed hands during the last four decades. Finally, the annotation of the letters incorporates the many significant discoveries of postwar Johnsonian scholarship, as well as decoding references that had previously resisted explanation. The result is a far richer understanding of Samuel Johnson's life, work, and milieu. Originally published in 1991. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

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

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,468 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
