Browse Quoted Authors

These pages link to Johnson’s dictionary entries that quote a particular author, no matter how Johnson cites that author. For example, Edmund Spenser is linked to his quotations regardless of whether Johnson credited Spenser, Spenser’s, Spens., or just Faerie Queene. When a title is provided, we verified that the quotation appears in that work. Because our research is ongoing, information on this page is subject to change.
