Life of Johnson, by Boswell was published in 1791, and it remains one of the best biographies ever written. It is a compilation of letters, journals, memoirs and extracts of other works. It presents the personality of the author, his profound ideas and his ideology of life. Even the most negligible detail about the dressing and the life style of Johnson is given in a humorous and subtle manner. The literary society of England at the time is also reflected through the work.
