Oliver Goldsmith (1730-1774) was an Irish writer, poet, and physician who was active in the late 18th century. He was born in rural Ireland, and was educated in Ireland and London. Despite having little formal education, he became a successful writer and poet, and was highly regarded in his own time.

Goldsmith is best known for his poem "The Deserted Village" (1770), which is a pastoral elegy that mourns the decline of rural life and the displacement of rural populations. The poem was widely read and popular, and was considered one of the great works of English literature of the 18th century.

Goldsmith was also a playwright and novelist. His play "She Stoops to Conquer" (1773) is a comedy of manners that is still performed today, and is considered a classic of English literature. His novel "The Vicar of Wakefield" (1766) is a sentimental novel that was also widely popular in its time.

In addition to his literary works, Goldsmith was a physician, and practiced medicine in London for a time. He was known for his kindness and generosity, and was highly regarded by his contemporaries for his wit, intelligence, and warmth.

Overall, Oliver Goldsmith was a versatile and talented writer who left a lasting legacy in English literature. He is remembered today as one of the great writers of the 18th century, and his works continue to be read and enjoyed by audiences around the world.
