Description
Information
A generous selection of writings that brings to life the attractive, complex, and guileful genius of the most celebrated American of his age.

It takes a very inclusive anthology to encompass the protean personality and range of interests of Benjamin Franklin, but 'The Portable Benjamin Franklin' succeeds as no collection has. In addition to the complete Autobiography, the volume contains about 100 of Franklin's major writings essays, journalism, letters, political tracts, scientific observations, proposals for the improvement of civic and personal life, literary bagatelles, and private musings. The selections are reprinted in their entirety and organized chronologically within six sections that represent the full range of Franklin's temperament. The result is a zestful read for Franklin scholars and anyone wanting to know and enjoy this American icon.
