Boswell transforms the most trifling occurrences into adventures, and imparts to the reader his own surpassing lust for experience and his keen sense of the fascination of life.' —Austin Wright, Virginia Quarterly Review 'The journal is admirably edited and annotated.”—W. Auden, New Yorker The late Frederick Pottle, Sterling Professor of English Emeritus at Yale University, was editor, bibliographer, and biographer of James Boswell.
