About Samuel Johnson
Samuel Johnson, the sharp-witted British essayist, wrote the first
English language dictionary; his definitions still form the backbone of
current dictionaries. He was born in Staffordshire in 1709. Johnson
married a widow 20 years his senior and lived in poverty before
achieving success with his essays when he was in his forties. Later in
life, he befriended the young James Boswell, whose Life of Johnson
became the quintessential English biography. Johnson died in 1784.
