As a son of a judge and a basic owner Smollett studied medicine first at the university of Glasgow. Its literary ambitions were however stronger than its medical, therefore it went 1739 to London, in order to try its luck there as dramatists. It was however successful with it not particularly and traveled as a ship's doctor to Jamaica, where it established itself for several years. After its return it opened a medical practice in London to 1747 and married a rich Jamaican heiress, Anne Lascelles.
Its first publication was a poem over the battle of Culloden, but only its pikaresker novel Roderick random, which it after the model of the Gil blow from Alain René Le legend had written, made it famous 1748. Auto+biographic elements had been removed here with Komik and Fabulierkunst to a Schelmenroman. In the following years collected Smollett in France material for its next novel, Peregrine Pickle, which appeared 1751 and was likewise a large success. 1753 followed Ferdinand COUNT Fathom, (count Ferdinand Fathom), which in certain respects already anticipated the later shower novel. Smollett was regarded now as a prominent literary personality, it was located in connection with David Garrick, olive Goldsmith, Samuel Johnson and Laurence of stars
in his last life decade wrote Smollett A Complete History OF England (1765), which it as his actual Hauptwerk regarded, furthermore the novel Sir Launcelot Greaves (1760) and the reports on a journey Travels through France and Italy (1766). Its last novel Humphry Clinker, which appeared in the year of its death, is considered to many readers as its most successful work: Elements of the Schelmenromans, the letter novel and the report on a journey were connected herein in artful way to a unit.
For health reasons Smollett spent its last Lebensjahre in Italy, where he deceased to 1771.
