Life and Writings of Addison

Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800 - 1859)

Joseph Addison (1672-1719) was an English essayist, poet, playwright, and Whig politician. Today he is most famous for his contributions, with Richard Steele, to the "The Spectator" magazine. In this essay, Macaulay portrays the life and work of this quiet, compassionate man, who amidst the cut and thrust of bitter political and literary rivalries, was always a gentleman, loved by his friends and, in the person of the Spectator, by posterity, as well.(Summary by Pamela Nagami, M.D.)
