KIRKUS REVIEW

Biography -- highly eulogistic. Goldsmith, the ugly, impecunious, fumbling for a trade, and finally arriving at the world of letters. His works, his friendship for Johnson, his gentle humor, his feeling for the world as it was. More of a literary presentation than an easy, popular picture, but disputes enough previous interpretations to be of value to Goldsmith fans. Sale primarily to college literature classes, and students of literature.
