Oliver Goldsmith (1728-1774)

Oliver Goldsmith is known for his humorous “Elegy on the Death of a Mad Dog” (1761) in which a good man is bitten by a dog:

The wound it seemed both sore and sad

To every christian eye;

And while they swore the dog was mad,

They swore the man would die.

But soon a wonder came to light

That showed the rogues they lied.

The man recovered of the bite,

The dog it was that died.

Later Goldsmith wrote “She Stoops to Conquer” (1773) where a private house is mistaken for a hotel.
