Anecdotes of Johnson
ReadHowYouWant.com, 2006 - 312 páginas
Piozzi's markedly distinctive and colloquial style is illuminated in the memoir ''Anecdotes of the Late Samuel Johnson''. It is an engaging study of an idiosyncratic and self-absorbing persona. It captures a very different side of Johnson during the last twenty years of his life. The specific linguistic and stylistic features of the biography successfully capture the attention of the reader.
