Summary

Poet, lexicographer, critic, moralist and Great Cham, Dr Johnson had in his friend Boswell the ideal biographer. Notoriously and self-confessedly intemperate, Boswell shared with Johnson a huge appetite for life and threw equal energy into recording its every aspect in minute but telling detail. This irrepressible Scotsman was 'always studying human nature and making experiments', and the marvellously vivacious Journals he wrote daily furnished him with first-rate material when he came to write his biography. The result is a masterpiece that brims over with wit, anecdote and originality. The Life of Samuel Johnson today continues to enjoy its status as a classic of the language. This shortened version is based on the 1799 edition, the last in which the author had a hand.
