    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    An analysis of the way details of Goldsmith's life may, or may not, be discovered from his literary works, both of fiction and non fiction. In particular, I show how many previously unmentioned details may be gleaned from his History of the Earth and Animated Nature (1774).
