JSA Papers Volume 12 will be available at the Annual General Meeting on Saturday 2 October 2010, free of charge to all Society members.
This year’s edition will be in the same format as last year’s – book size, easy to fit on home bookshelves.
As usual, the papers cover a wide range of subjects:
- Ann Blake’s colourful 2008 Fleeman Lecture on Johnson, Sheridan and the London theatre: “An Ornament of the Metropolis”
- Nick Hudson’s witty dissection of Johnson’s approach to grammar, “Johnson and the Grammarians”
- Barrie Sheppard’s interesting analysis of imagery in creative writing, “Johnson and Metaphor”
- Daniel Vuillermin’s informative discussion on how Boswell, Reynolds and the 19th Century genre Painters portrayed Johnson.
