Lessing displays a remarkable familiarity with the English literary scene and shows himself especially aware of Samuel Johnson`s literary output and his dramatic critical achievement in neo-classical England. The study traces and examines affinities of Lessing`s ideas with those of Johnson and a certain impact of Johnson on Lessing`s ideas in the field of dramatic critical theory and practice. The investigation centres on Johnson`s Rambler, his Dictionary, and his edition of The Plays of William Shakespeare and on Lessing`s Laokoon and the Hamburgische Dramaturgie. Plays studied are Irene, Miss Sara Sampson, Emilia Galotti and Minna von Barnhelm.
