A Dish of Tea with Dr Johnson
Meet Samuel Johnson - poet, essayist and compiler of the first English dictionary. This evening of anecdotes and witty conversation brings to life one of the most colourful figures of the eighteenth century: irritable, generous, depressive yet hilarious. And meet characters from his life, from biographer James Boswell and painter Joshua Reynolds, to the society hostess who was Johnson's final, unrequited, love.
|Author ||James Boswell (with additional material by Russell Barr Ian Redford and Max Stafford-Clark)|
