Samuel Johnson



Critic, Essayist, Philologist, Biographer, Wit, Poet, Moralist, Dramatist, Political Writer, Talker. So says the inscription. It doesn't say he was nice to his cat and he loved London, but he was and he did. The statue is in St Clement Danes, by Aldwych, around the corner from his house - "The gift and handiwork of Percy Fitzgerald". So now you know.
