The Life of Joseph Addison

Copertina anteriore
Clarendon P., 1968 - 499 pagine
There has never been a full biography of Joseph Addison, and this book is an attempt to provide one. Addison was the most admired literary figure in the England of his day; and after his death his writings influenced the development of English society and manners to an extent exceeded only by the Bible. The secret of this persuasive power lay as much in his personal qualities and principles of conduct as in the charm and elegance of the writing in which they found expression. -- From publisher's description.
