Samuel Johnson only wrote one dictionary. However, because of his introduction of several types of genres within that dictionary, he became very well known and criticized. He was often criticized for adding several voices to the definition, such as lexicographer and quotations to better depict the meaning. He did have a strong opinion on how dictionaries should be used. For example he felt that they should be used to assist with social control. Because of his beliefs and ideals, the discussion and controversy of the dictionary moved into the forefront in public eyes.
