FREE DOWNLOAD ✓ The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia Samuel Johnson ò 1 FREE DOWNLOAD CHARACTERS The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia Rasselas and his companions escape the pleasures of the happy valley in order to make their choice of life By witnessing the misfortunes and miseries of others they come to understand the nature of happiness and value it highly Their travels and enuiries raise important practical and philosophical uestions concerning many aspects of the human condition including the business of a poet the stability of reason the immortality of the soul and how to find contentment J. Written in one week to defray the cost of his mother s funeral Johnson s moral tale is a superior example of the prose of its era and its era the Age of Enlightenment is renowned for the uality of its prose It is true that Candide written in 1759 the same year as Rasselas excels Johnson s work in both wit and humor but then Voltaire s task was much easier He merely wished to demolish another man s philosophy whereas Johnson wished to persuade his readers how to be happyBeing happy wasn t easy for Johnson He suffered from poor eyesight facial scarring from scrofula intense irritability OCD Tourette s and thoughts of suicide He also was afflicted with severe depression in his youth so profoundly that as he once told a friend he was sometimes so languid and inefficient that he could not distinguish the hour upon the town clock How did he withstand such obstacles By keeping his fancies and wishes private applying himself assiduously to the task at hand and enjoying whatever happiness arose from his laborsIt should be no surprise that Johnson s personal method is similar to the moral of his tale When Rasselas of Abyssinia becomes discontented with The Happy Valley where his every whim is catered to he departs with his sister her companion and his tutor to explore the condition of the world The four of them have many adventures experiencing much pleasure and pain but nothing offers them real satisfaction except for the enduring promise of heaven After discoursing on various philosophical topics they conclude that the greatest wisdom would be to return from where they came embracing their destiny in The Happy Valley As a sample of Johnson s measured deliberate prose I offer the following excerpt from a discourse on the relative merits of the monastic and secular life Those men answered Imlac are less wretched in their silent convent than the Abissinian princes in their prison of pleasure Whatever is done by the monks is incited by an adeuate and reasonable motive Their labour supplies them with necessaries it therefore cannot be omitted and is certainly rewarded Their devotion prepares them for another state and reminds them of its approach while it fits them for it Their time is regularly distributed one duty succeeds another so that they are not left open to the distraction of unguided choice nor lost in the shades of listless inactivity There is a certain task to be performed at an appropriated hour and their toils are cheerful because they consider them as acts of piety by which they are always advancing towards endless felicity Do you think said Nekayah that the monastick rule is a holy and less imperfect state than any other May not he eually hope for future happiness who converses openly with mankind who succours the distressed by his charity instructs the ignorant by his learning and contributes by his industry to the general system of life even though he should omit some of the mortifications which are practised in the cloister and allow himself such harmless delights as his condition may place within his reach This said Imlac is a uestion which has long divided the wise and perplexed the good I am afraid to decide on either part He that lives well in the world is better than he that lives well in a monastery But perhaps every one is not able to stem the temptations of publick life and if he cannot conuer he may properly retreat Some have little power to do good and have likewise little strength to resist evil Many weary of their conflicts with adversity and are willing to eject those passions which have long busied them in vain And many are dismissed by age and diseases from the laborious duties of society In monasteries the weak and timorous may be happily sheltered the weary may repose and the penitent may meditate Those retreats of prayer and contemplation have something so congenial to the mind of man that perhaps there is scarcely one that does not purpose to close his life in pious abstraction with a few associates serious as himself คู่ป่วนสืบคดีพิศวง 6 ตอน อาถรรพ์ฤดูร้อน defray the cost of his mother s funeral Johnson s moral tale is a superior example of the prose of its era and its era the
