The history of Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia

by:Johnson, Samuel, 1709-1784

This volume recounts the escape of Rasselas and his companions from the 'soft vicissitudes of pleasure and repose' in the happy valley to Egypt, there to study the conditions of men's lives and to seek the active principle of happiness. The real point however, is the manner of the telling--the humor, the solidity of the wisdom, and the verbal force and skill with which that wisdom is pressed home. It is an attack on eighteenth-century optimism and romanticism. However it is an attack without malignancy, without self-righteousness, born rather of a tragic sense of life.
