    schema:reviewBody ""This work is based on a simple premise - that in the case of a major figure like Johnson the reader should have access to all his work. Johnson himself would not have wished that in an age when very few people can read the language his Latin poetry should be consigned to a separate category, closed to most educated readers." "The range of the poems considered in this volume is considerable. The epigrams from the Greek Anthology cover many topics, displaying not only the author's dexterity as a versifier but also occasionally his willingness to give the epigrams a new thrust toward moralizing or satire. Much earlier, his lighthearted compositions had begun with the complaint about college beer, and then continued with pieces like the satirical squib against Walpole's government, and the teasing of Crisp over his liking for the theater. A deeper note is struck in the verses on Skye: the first ode turns into a reflection on peace of mind, and the second ends with affectionate thoughts on Mrs. Thrale; the poem on Inchkenneth celebrated the virtuous and cultivated lifestyle of a local family. Other tributes are paid to Pope, to the publisher Cave, and to Dr. Lawrence. The most striking passages, however, come in the middle of "Know Thyself" (a dreadful description of a mind on the verge of collapse), in the charming recollections of swimming as a boy at Stowe Mill, and in the anguished appeals for mercy in the devotional poems." "This short study makes no attempt to repeat the large amount of work already done on the historical background of the poems. It aims, rather, to present a more accurate text, a fairly literal translation that may enable the reader with rusty Latin to follow the original, and some notes that draw attention to style and treatment and to the ease with which Johnson draws on the observations of his predecessors. All of this shows how accessible the first Augustan age was to the second. In these ways the book would claim to make a small but distinctive contribution to the study of a well-known figure."--Jacket." ;
