Anglo-Irish author who achieved some success as a miscellaneous contributor to periodicals and as the author of Enquiry into the Present State of Polite Learning in Europe. But it was not until The Citizen of the World, a series of whimsical and satirical essays, that he was recognized as an able man of letters. His fame grew with The Traveler, a philosophic poem, and the nostalgic pastoral The Deserted Village. The Vicar of Wakefield is Goldsmith's most enduring novel. It is a portrait of village life, narrated by Dr. Primrose, the title character, whose family endures many trials-including the loss of most of their money, the seduction of one daughter, the destruction of their home by fire, and the vicar's incarceration.
