Poetical Works free pdf Excerpt from Poetical Works: Illustrated by Wood Engravings From the Designs of C. W. Cope With a Biographical Memoir, and Notes on the Poems, Edited by Bolton Corney Dr. Johnson pronounced The Traveller to be the finest poem that had appeared since the time of Pope- and this measured encomium, dictated by the great Aristarch of British Poets, was probably sufficient to content the ambition of the author. The Poem exhibits all the terseness, the polished versification, and the smartness, of the author of the Essay on Man, whose style was the model of the poetasters of the day: but there is an originality in Goldsmith, which entitles him to rank higher than the highest form in the school of Pope. In his style he may perhaps be considered as an imitator: his thoughts are always his own, and are impressed with the genuine simplicity of his character. The Traveller is one of the few didactic poems, in which the poet and the moralist never part company. The sentiments appeal to the imagination, as strongly as the descriptions by which they are illustrated. The author himself engages our interest in the person of the Traveller, and his observations and remarks acquire a picturesque effect, from being associated with the scenery which suggested them. On this production, Goldsmith rested his hope of establishing his fame, and he bestowed his choicest hours on its composition. It was first printed in 1765, and it completely succeeded in procuring for the author celebrity and patronage. Patronage however - at least the patronage of the great - was not the object of his solicitude. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
