`There Is Something Wrong'

A poet whose name I had never heard before Wednesday, April Bernard, includes “Found Sonnet: Samuel Johnson,” in her latest collection, Brawl & Jag (W.W. Norton, 2016). The words are drawn from The Rambler #5. Her alterations to Johnson’s text are indicated in brackets:

“[. . . w]hen a man cannot bear his own company
there is something wrong. He must fly
from himself, either because he feels a tediousness
in life from the equipoise of an empty mind,
which, having no tendency
to one motion more than another,
but as it is impelled by some external power,
must always have recourse to foreign objects;
or he must be afraid of the intrusion of [some] unpleasing ideas,
and[,] perhaps[,] is struggling to escape
from the remembrance of a loss, the fear of a calamity,
or some other thought of greater horro[u]r.

“A French author has advanced this seeming paradox,
that very few men know how to take a walk [. . .].”
