Lives of the English Poets-Vol II
The late Sir Walter Raleigh said that 'for every fifty readers of Boswell's Life of Johnson there came out in 1670.has perhaps been only one reader of Johnson himself, but (that) the man who professes a liking for Johnson's prose has found it out for himself, and his talk is good to hear.' This volume contains, among others, essays on Congreve, Gay, Swift, Pope, Thomson, Collins and Gray.
