Poet, biographer, critic, and author of the most essential English dictionary until the OED, Samuel Johnson was and remains one of the most fascinating figures of the 18th century. But even his famed first biographer, James Boswell, failed to explore the full complexity of Johnson's inner world, a task which Peter Martin admirably tackles here. Johnson's unsung depression and poverty, his familial wounds, his playboy tendencies--all these facets and more are explored with a frankness that would never have been possible in his own time. Martin's take on Johnson offers a new perspective on a rightfully celebrated literary icon.
