A Biography for General Readers
This is an authoritative, well-researched biography of Samuel Johnson, one of the great writers in England in the eighteenth century. The focus of the style of the book is in the subtitle: the book is aimed at general readers. Not scholars. The language is clear, the level of detail is appropriate, and the length is just right. It is fully documented with notes about sources, but they are at the end so that they don’t clutter the page for readers more interested in the story. There’s also a bibliography and index.
