Oliver Goldsmith-Brief Life Sketch

Oliver Goldsmith was a poet, novelist and dramatist. He was born on November 10, 1730, in a small village in Ireland. After graduating from Trinity College, Dublin, he spent some time studying medicine in Edinburgh. However, he did not complete his studies. Then he went on travelling in 1756 and traveled to various parts of Europe for almost two years with almost an empty pocket.

After returning from travelling, at first, he tried to earn a living as a doctor. But as a doctor, he cut a sorry figure and then he turned his attention to literary pursuits. In 1759, he published some essays. In the same year, he became the editor of ‘The Bee’ and published his various writings such as essays, biographies, translations, etc. Among his published works ‘The Traveller’ and ‘The Deserted Village’ (two poems) are particularly noteworthy. These poems brought recognition to Goldsmiths as a poet. Notable books authored by him include: ‘The Vicar of Wakefield’ (novel), ‘The Good Natured Man’, and ‘She Stops to Conquer’ (drama)

Oliver Goldsmith died on 4 April 1774 in London, England. 0 0 0
