  • Samuel Johnson (18 September 1709 [O.S. 7 September] – 13 December 1784), often referred to as Dr Johnson, was an English writer who made lasting contributions to English literature as a poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer. Johnson was a devout Anglican and committed Tory, and is described by the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography as "arguably the most distinguished man of letters in English history". He is also the subject of perhaps the most famous biography in English literature, namely The Life of Samuel Johnson by James Boswell. Born in Lichfield, Staffordshire, Johnson attended Pembroke College, Oxford for just over a year, before his lack of funds forced him to leave. After working as a teacher, he moved to London, where he began to write for The Gentleman's Magazine. His early works include the biography Life of Mr Richard Savage, the poems London and The Vanity of Human Wishes, and the play Irene. After nine years of work, Johnson's A Dictionary of the English Language was published in 1755. It had a far-reaching effect on Modern English and has been described as "one of the greatest single achievements of scholarship". This work brought Johnson popularity and success. Until the completion of the Oxford English Dictionary 150 years later, Johnson's was viewed as the pre-eminent British dictionary. His later works included essays, an influential annotated edition of The Plays of William Shakespeare, and the widely read tale The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia. In 1763, he befriended James Boswell, with whom he later travelled to Scotland; Johnson described their travels in A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland. Towards the end of his life, he produced the massive and influential Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets, a collection of biographies and evaluations of 17th- and 18th-century poets. Johnson was a tall and robust man. His odd gestures and tics were disconcerting to some on first meeting him. Boswell's Life, along with other biographies, documented Johnson's behaviour and mannerisms in such detail that they have informed the posthumous diagnosis of Tourette syndrome, a condition not defined or diagnosed in the 18th century. After a series of illnesses, he died on the evening of 13 December 1784, and was buried in Westminster Abbey. In the years following his death, Johnson began to be recognised as having had a lasting effect on literary criticism, and he was claimed by some to be the only truly great critic of English literature.

  • Samuel Johnson (* 7. Septemberjul./ 18. September 1709greg. in Lichfield; † 13. Dezember 1784 in London), wegen seiner Gelehrsamkeit meist Dr. Johnson genannt (das Trinity College Dublin ernannte ihn 1765 zum Doktor der Rechte ehrenhalber, 10 Jahre später erhielt er eine weitere Ehrendoktorwürde der Universität Oxford), war ein englischer Gelehrter, Lexikograf, Schriftsteller, Dichter und Kritiker. Er ist nach William Shakespeare der meistzitierte englische Autor und war im 18. Jahrhundert die wichtigste Person im literarischen Leben Englands, vergleichbar mit Gottsched in Deutschland. (de)
  • Samuel Johnson, por lo general conocido simplemente como el Dr. Johnson (Lichfield, Staffordshire, 18 de septiembre de 1709-Londres, 13 de diciembre de 1784), es una de las figuras literarias más importantes de Inglaterra: poeta, ensayista, biógrafo, lexicógrafo, es considerado por muchos como el mejor crítico literario en idioma inglés. Johnson era poseedor de un gran talento y de una prosa con un estilo inigualable. Devoto anglicano y políticamente conservador, el Dr. Johnson ha sido descrito como «sin lugar a dudas, el hombre de letras más distinguido de la historia inglesa». Pese a la gran calidad de su obra y a su enorme celebridad en vida, Johnson es principalmente recordado por ser el objeto de «el más notable ejemplo de arte biográfico en las letras inglesas», a saber, la biografía escrita por su amigo James Boswell, La vida de Samuel Johnson, a la que ha quedado inevitablemente ligado. Famoso por su brillante conversación, y gracias a sus múltiples biógrafos contemporáneos, se conocen gran cantidad de anécdotas del Dr. Johnson. Igualmente, su estilo aforístico, su filosofía basada sobre todo en el sentido común, y su elegancia escrita, han hecho que sea el segundo autor más citado de la lengua inglesa tras Shakespeare. (es)
  • Samuel Johnson (aussi connu sous le nom de Dr Johnson, « Docteur Johnson »), né le 18 septembre 1709 et mort le 13 décembre 1784, est l'un des principaux auteurs de la littérature britannique. Poète, essayiste, biographe, lexicographe, traducteur, pamphlétaire, journaliste, éditeur, moraliste et polygraphe, il est aussi un critique littéraire des plus réputés. Ses commentaires sur Shakespeare, en particulier, sont considérés comme des classiques. Anglican pieux et fervent Tory (conservateur), il a été présenté comme « probablement le plus distingué des hommes de lettres de l'histoire de l'Angleterre ». La première biographie lui ayant été consacrée, The Life of Samuel Johnson de James Boswell, parue en 1791, est le « plus célèbre de tous les travaux de biographie de toute la littérature ». Au Royaume-Uni, Samuel Johnson est appelé « Docteur Johnson » en raison du titre universitaire de Doctor of Laws, docteur en droit, qui lui fut accordé à titre honorifique. Né à Lichfield dans le Staffordshire, il a suivi les cours du Pembroke College à Oxford pendant un an, jusqu'à ce que son manque d'argent l'oblige à le quitter. Après avoir travaillé comme instituteur, il vint à Londres où il commença à écrire des articles dans The Gentleman's Magazine. Ses premières œuvres sont la biographie de son ami, le poète Richard Savage, The Life of Mr Richard Savage (1744), les poèmes London (Londres) et The Vanity of Human Wishes (La Vanité des désirs humains) et une tragédie Irene. Toutefois, son extrême popularité tient d'une part à son œuvre majeure, le Dictionary of the English Language, publié en 1755 après neuf années de travail, et d'autre part à la biographie que lui a consacrée James Boswell. Avec le Dictionary, dont les répercussions sur l'anglais moderne sont considérables, Johnson a rédigé à lui seul l'équivalent, pour la langue anglaise, du Dictionnaire de l'Académie française. Le Dictionary, décrit par Batte en 1977 comme « l'un des plus grands exploits individuels de l'érudition », fit la renommée de son auteur et, jusqu'à la première édition du Oxford English Dictionary (OED) en 1928, il était le dictionnaire britannique de référence. Quant à la Vie de Samuel Johnson par Boswell, elle fait date dans le domaine de la biographie. C'est de cet ouvrage monumental que proviennent nombre de bons mots prononcés par Johnson, mais aussi beaucoup de ses commentaires et de ses réflexions, qui ont valu à Johnson d'être « l'Anglais le plus souvent cité après Shakespeare ». Ses dernières œuvres sont des essais, une influente édition annotée de The Plays of William Shakespeare (1765) et le roman largement lu Rasselas. En 1763, il se lie d'amitié avec James Boswell, avec qui il voyage plus tard en Écosse ; Johnson décrit leurs voyages dans A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland (« Un voyage vers les îles occidentales de l'Écosse »). Vers la fin de sa vie, il rédige Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets (« Vies des plus éminents poètes anglais »), un recueil de biographies de poètes des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles. Johnson était grand et robuste, mais ses gestes bizarres et ses tics étaient déroutants pour certains lorsqu'ils le rencontraient pour la première fois. The Life of Samuel Johnson et d'autres biographies de ses contemporains décrivaient le comportement et les tics de Johnson avec tant de détails que l'on a pu diagnostiquer ultérieurement qu'il avait souffert du syndrome de Gilles de la Tourette, inconnu au XVIIIe siècle, pendant la majeure partie de sa vie. Après une série de maladies, il meurt le 13 décembre 1784 au soir, et est enterré à l'abbaye de Westminster, à Londres. Après sa mort, Johnson commence à être reconnu comme ayant eu un effet durable sur la critique littéraire, et même comme le seul grand critique de la littérature anglaise. (fr)
  • Egli è spesso citato come Dr Johnson. Fu un devoto anglicano e politicamente un tory ed è stato classificato come "senza dubbio il letterato più illustre nella storia inglese". Egli è stato l'uomo descritto "nella più famosa biografia della letteratura inglese": James Boswell, Life of Johnson. Johnson nacque a Lichfield nello Staffordshire e frequentò il Pembroke College di Oxford per poco più di un anno, prima che la mancanza di fondi lo obbligasse a lasciare. Dopo aver lavorato come insegnante si trasferì a Londra, dove iniziò a scrivere articoli di vario genere per il Gentleman's Magazine. I suoi primi lavori furono la biografia The Life of Mr Richard Savage, i componenti poetici London e The Vanity of Human Wishes e il dramma Irene. Dopo nove anni di lavoro, nel 1755 venne pubblicato il Dictionary of the English Language; quest'opera ha avuto anche un influsso di vasta portata sulla lingua inglese moderna ed è stata descritta come "uno dei più grandi successi della erudizione". Il Dictionary significò per Johnson fama e successo. Fino al completamento del Oxford English Dictionary, 150 anni dopo, il dizionario di Johnson è stato considerato come il dizionario britannico per eccellenza. I suoi ultimi lavori comprendevano saggi, un'edizione annotata delle opere teatrali di William Shakespeare, e il racconto di grande successo, La storia di Rasselas, Principe dell'Abissinia. Nel 1763, fece amicizia con James Boswell, con cui in seguito viaggiò in Scozia; Johnson descrisse il loro viaggio in A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland. Verso la fine della sua vita, scrisse Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets un'imponente ed autorevole raccolta di biografie e citazioni dei poeti inglesi del XVII e XVIII secolo. Johnson era di costituzione alto e robusto, ma i suoi gesti strani e i tic erano motivo di confusione in chi lo incontrasse per la prima volta. Sia l'autorevole biografia di Johnson scritta da Boswell sia quelle scritte da altri autori, danno una dettagliata descrizione del comportamento e degli atteggiamenti di Johnson da poter consentire la formulazione di una diagnosi postuma della sindrome di Tourette (TS), una patologia non ben conosciuta o diagnosticata nel XVIII secolo. Dopo una serie di varie affezioni, Samuel Johnson morì la sera del 13 dicembre 1784, e fu sepolto in Westminster Abbey. A partire dagli anni successivi alla sua morte, a Johnson venne riconosciuto l'influsso durevole esercitato sulla critica letteraria ed anche il primato come critico della letteratura inglese. (it)

Johnson was in zijn tijd een van de belangrijkste figuren van het Londense literaire en intellectuele milieu. Hij was een harde werker, die constant klaagde over zijn luiheid, een sociaal bewogen mens, die gebukt ging onder een enorm schuldgevoel en een zwaarmoedige theedrinker.

  • Samuel Johnson (Lichfield, 7 de Setembro de 1709 - Londres, 13 de Dezembro de 1784), também conhecido em língua inglesa como Dr Johnson, foi um escritor e pensador inglês que conhecido por suas notáveis contribuições à língua inglesa como poeta, ensaísta, moralista, biógrafo, crítico literário e lexicógrafo. Possivelmente o "mais distinto homem de letras da história da Inglaterra", Johnson é personagem da "mais reconhecida biografia do mundo da literatura", o trabalho Life of Samuel Johnson de James Boswell. Filho de um livreiro, foi obrigado a abandonar os estudos em Oxford por falta de recursos e passou a ganhar a vida como preceptor e tradutor. Juntando algum dinheiro, fundou uma escola particular, mas fracassou no empreendimento. Em 1737, com seu aluno David Garrik, foi para Londres, onde iniciou intensa atividade de crítico e jornalista. Em pouco tempo conquistou grande reputação, confirmada com a publicação de A vida de Richard Savage, em 1744 e do Dicionário da língua inglesa, em 1755. Ao mesmo tempo, colaborou com a revista The Rambler (1750/52) e depois em The Idler, (1758/60). A influência literária de Samuel Johnson tornou-se cada vez maior, especialmente depois que criou em 1764 um clube literário com os amigos Edward Gibbon, Joshua Reynolds, Oliver Goldsmith e Edmund Burke. Johnson é o autor de uma famosa frase: "O patriotismo é o último refúgio do canalha". "O desejo de vingança é fruto da paixão; a vingança pode levar à justiça". Em 1765 apresentou uma edição comentada das obras de Shakespeare e sua perspicácia crítica afirmou-se ainda mais quando demonstrou que as obras atribuídas ao poeta Ossian na verdade não eram de sua autoria. Esta revelação está em seu livro de viagens Jornada às ilhas da Escócia, de 1775. Johnson publicou também um romance de muito sucesso - A história de Rasselas, princípe da Abissínia, de 1759 -, que foi escrito em poucos dias. No campo da crítica literária, sua obra-prima foi Vidas dos mais eminentes poetas ingleses (1779/83), em quatro volumes, e que continua a ser um dos textos fundamentais da estética do neoclassicismo inglês. Ele está enterrado na Abadia de Westminster. (pt)

  • A few days before his death, he had asked Sir John Hawkins, one of his executors, where he should be buried; and on being answered, "Doubtless, in Westminster Abbey," seemed to feel a satisfaction, very natural to a Poet.
  • After we came out of the church, we stood talking for some time together of Bishop Berkeley's ingenious sophistry to prove the non-existence of matter, and that every thing in the universe is merely ideal. I observed, that though we are satisfied his doctrine is not true, it is impossible to refute it. I never shall forget the alacrity with which Johnson answered, striking his foot with mighty force against a large stone, till he rebounded from it, 'I refute it thus.'
  • During the whole of the interview, Johnson talked to his Majesty with profound respect, but still in his firm manly manner, with a sonorous voice, and never in that subdued tone which is commonly used at the levee and in the drawing-room. After the King withdrew, Johnson shewed himself highly pleased with his Majesty's conversation and gracious behaviour. He said to Mr Barnard, 'Sir, they may talk of the King as they will; but he is the finest gentleman I have ever seen.'
  • When he was a child in petticoats, and had learnt to read, Mrs. Johnson one morning put the common prayer-book into his hands, pointed to the collect for the day, and said, 'Sam, you must get this by heart.' She went up stairs, leaving him to study it: But by the time she had reached the second floor, she heard him following her. 'What's the matter?' said she. 'I can say it,' he replied; and repeated it distinctly, though he could not have read it more than twice.
  • Mr Thrale's death was a very essential loss to Johnson, who, although he did not foresee all that afterwards happened, was sufficiently convinced that the comforts which Mr Thrale's family afforded him, would now in great measure cease.
  • His necessary attendance while his play was in rehearsal, and during its performance, brought him acquainted with many of the performers of both sexes, which produced a more favourable opinion of their profession than he had harshly expressed in his Life of Savage. With some of them he kept up an acquaintance as long as he and they lived, and was ever ready to shew them acts of kindness. He for a considerable time used to frequent the Green Room, and seemed to take delight in dissipating his gloom, by mixing in the sprightly chit-chat of the motley circle then to be found there. Mr. David Hume related to me from Mr. Garrick, that Johnson at last denied himself this amusement, from considerations of rigid virtue; saying, 'I'll come no more behind your scenes, David; for the silk stockings and white bosoms of your actresses excite my amorous propensities.
