Yellin: First Edition, 2004. "Despite Cato's enormous success when it was first staged in 1713, Joseph Addison (1672-1719) was perhaps best known as an essayist. In periodicals like the Spectator, Guardian, Tatler, and Freeholder he sought to educate England's developing middle class in the habits, morals, and manners he believed necessary for the preservation of a free society. His work in these periodicals helped to define the modern essay form. This volume brings together Addison's dramatic masterpiece along with a selection of his essays that are directly related to the play and that developed key themes." from the jacket flap.
