Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Samuel Johnson became famous as a poet and a moral essayist before completing his most famous project, The Dictionary of the English Language. James Boswell met Samuel Johnson in 1763, when the two began their trip around the Hebrides, and is celebrated not only as Johnson's biographer but also for the disarming honesty of his personal diaries. Formerly a lecturer in Celtic in Glasgow and Edinburgh universities, Ronald Black is Gaelic Editor of The Scotsman and a columnist in the West Highland Free Press. In addition to numerous academic articles he is author or editor of: Mac Mhaighstir Alasdair: The Ardnamurchan Years, An Tuil: Anthology of 20th Century Scottish Gaelic Verse, An Lasair: Anthology of 18th Century Scottish Gaelic Verse, Eilein na h-Oige: The Poems of Fr Allan McDonald and The Gaelic Otherworld.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is inexpressibly lovely to read about a place in their travels (say, the isle of Mull or Coll) in the words of Johnson, and then in the words of Boswell. So you don't have to read the entire journal of the trip to the Hebrides that Boswell wrote, and then the entire journal of the trip written by Johnson, to compare their reactions to the same place, but rather you have their "takes" on each leg of the journey side by side.
