Samuel Johnson : Rambler, The

'That ingenious and elegant gentleman's [Shenstone's] opinion of Johnson appears in one of his letters to Mr. Greaves, dated Feb. 9, 1760. "I have lately been reading one or two volumes of the Rambler; who, excepting against some few hardnesses in his manner, and the want of more examples to enliven, is one of the most nervous, most perspicuous, most concise, [and] most harmonious prose writers I know. A learned diction improves by time".'

Century: 1700-1799     Reader/Listener/Group: William Shenstone      Print: Serial / periodical
