7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This collection of original essays on the writings of Tobias Smollett by eleven scholars from Canada, England, France, Ireland, and the United States takes a fresh look at issues raised not only in Smollett's novels, for which he is now usually remembered, but in works such as A Complete History of England and the Continuation of the Complete History, which made him the most popular historian of England in the mid-eighteenth century. Essays provide new insights into Smollett's writings, and suggest additional avenues for scholars to explore. The volume continues the reassessment of the writings of one of the major authors of the eighteenth century."--Jacket
A commentary on Mr. Pope's principles of morality, or Essay on man : a translation from the French by Jean-Pierre de Crousaz( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The most important notes, however, relate to the problem of evil, particularly the ruling passion and the necessity of free will. From these scattered observations it is clear that Johnson comes down firmly on the side of orthodoxy, believing that God created man for happiness but that both physical and moral evil entered the world because of Original Sin and, hence, that many of the miseries of life are mankind's own fault. Many of the ideas first given expression here were to occupy Johnson's mind for the remainder of his life."--BOOK JACKET
