The Johnson Society of Australia

Celebrating the life and work of the 18th Century writer and lexicographer Samuel Johnson and his circle.

JSA Papers available at the AGM

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.

Don’t miss out on your copy!
