UNTAM’D is the untold and riveting tale of the 18th century lexicographer Samuel Johnson’s epic struggle to write the first dictionary of English. Not only is this is the story of a man who tries to tame himself and the English language but it is a sensitive, personal story of a passionate and gentle individual who overcomes the pressures of doubting and debilitating institutions and personal tragedy to achieve success in creating the first comprehensive English dictionary, a bastion of culture and language.
