Macaulay's Life of Samuel Johnson (Thomas Babington Macaulay) pdf, epub, doc

I bought Macaulay's Life of Samuel Johnson purely to compare with the better known biography by James Boswell.

Macaulay's version is short, more of an essay than a true biography, but it gives the kind of details about Dr Johnson that only another writer would notice. This is a comment about Taxation no Tyranny, described by Macaulay as a "pitiable failure".
The arguments were such as boys use in debating societies. The pleasantry was as awkward as the gambols of a hippopotamus.

Although it is Boswell who claims to have been Johnson's close friend, it is Macaulay who gives the more intimate description of his subject.
The old philosopher is still among us in the brown coat with the metal buttons and the shirt which ought to be at wash, blinking, puffing, rolling his head, drumming with his fingers, tearing his meat like a tiger, and swallowing his tea in oceans.
