Biographies

 
 

Biographical writing is one of the most popular form of nonfiction. The Life of Samuel Johnson by James Boswell (pictured above), is considered one of the best biographies written in the English language. From the details of Johnson’s uncouth eating habits, his moral sensibilities, and aphoristic wit, Boswell was able to make the famous lexicographer come alive. The following library of student works includes a written biography as well as the interview that preceded the writing of it.
