Tobias Smollett

LibriVox volunteers bring you 16 recordings of Song by Tobias Smollett. This is the weekly poem starting from October 16th, 2011. It's a lovely love song. ( Summary by Stav Nisser ) Taken from the Poetical Works of Johnson, Parnell, Gray, and Smollett by Thomas Gray et al. Smollett, for variety of powers, and indefatigable industry, has seldom been surpassed. He was a politician, a poet, a physician, a historian, a translator, a writer of travels, a dramatist, a novelist, a writer on medical subjects, and a miscellaneous author. It is only, however, as a novelist and a poet that he has any claims to the admiration of posterity.(Summary from the Explanatory Notes by The Rev. George Gilfillan, Edinburgh)
