Part one of a lengthy article on Samuel Johnson, originally written in , is a result of my interest in freelance, or market, intellectuals. Jeff Riggenbach likes to quote a famous line from Samuel Johnson, viz. All quotations, unless otherwise noted, are from this book. Not only do we get to see the formidable Samuel Johnson quip, argue, and pontificate his way through London society, and not only are we provided with valuable glimpses of other literary, political, and philosophic figures of the time, but we are also provided with a detailed record of one of the most able and eccentric professional writers in 18 th Century London.
Boswell, himself an aspiring writer, engaged Johnson in many conversations about books, writers, and — most significantly for our purpose — about the process of writing itself, and how a free-lance writer managed to survive in a highly competitive world of literary talent. Samuel Johnson, the son of an impecunious bookseller, was born in Lichfield in Beginning in , he spent 14 months at Pembroke College, Oxford, until poverty ended his formal education.
Shortly thereafter, while staying in the home of a Birmingham bookseller named Mr. Warren, Johnson got one of his first paying jobs in the field of literature. A printer asked Johnson to translate a book Voyage to Abyssinia from French into English and offered him five guineas for his work. Thus did a humanitarian incentive succeed where a financial incentive had failed.
After two unsuccessful attempts at teaching convinced Johnson that he was not cut out for this profession the greatest minds, as Boswell defensively noted, often make the worst teachers , Johnson set out for London in Accompanied by a former pupil, David Garrick who would later achieve fame as an actor , Johnson arrived in London virtually penniless. Sir, if you wish to have a just notion of the magnitude of this city, you must not be satisfied with seeing its great streets and squares, but must survey the innumerable little lanes and courts.
It is not in the showy evolution of buildings, but in the multiplicity of human habitations which are crowded together, that the wonderful immensity of London consists. But London was not kind to Samuel Johnson, at least not financially.

Rather, the problem was that hack writing was not a lucrative career, even for an industrious and talented writer like Johnson. Boswell described the condition of Samuel Johnson and his friend Richard Savage as follows:. It is melancholy to reflect, that Johnson and Savage were sometimes in such extreme indigence, that they could not pay for a lodging; so that they had wandered together whole nights in the streets.
