Johnson And Boswell Quotes

Johnsons later life, from 1763, is among the best documented of all literary lives. James Boswell gave himself the enormous task, after Johnsons death in 1784, of producing what is now held to be a model of biography; rich in detail and anecdote, a complete picture of the man and his times, traced over a period of more than twenty years. Boswells Life of Johnson, published in 1791, carries on Johnsons own contribution to the growing art of biography, and consolidates Johnsons position as a major literary figure, who, although a poet and a novelist, is remembered more for his academic and critical achievement than for his creative writings.
