Samuel Johnson, English writer who made lasting contributions as a poet, playwright, essayist, moralist, critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer, was born on September 18, 1709 and died on December 13, 1784.

Samuel Johnson, the literary giant of the 18th century, was as famous for his wit as he was for his towering intellect. With his unruly wig perched precariously on his head and a quill in hand, he roamed the bustling streets of 18th-century London, his quick wit slicing through conversation like a rapier. His dictionary, a monumental labor of love, was a testament to his dedication to the English language. Yet, beneath his stern facade, Johnson possessed a heart as big as his lexicon, offering shelter to a host of oddball pets, from Hodge the cat to the infamous parrot, Poll. In the bustling coffeehouses and dimly lit taverns of his era, Samuel Johnson's formidable intellect and inimitable charm left an indelible mark on English literature and the art of conversation itself.
