Joseph F. Johnson, Writing andMemory. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ISBN Nicholas Hudson. SamuelJohnson and the Making ofModern England. Greg Clingham and Nicholas Hudson each present a compelling case for the centrality ofSamuelJohnson to the English eighteenth century as well as to the concerns of today, yet they take distinctly different approaches.
Clingham emphasizes howJohnson looks backward and draws upon the past as a way to construct an understanding ofthe present In contrast, Hudson explores how Johnson looks forward and how he has had an impact on subsequent generations. These books also differ as much in methodologyas they do in substance.
Clingham adopts a more theoretical approach, exploringjohnson in relation to postmodernism and the insights ofDerrida, Foucault, and Hayden White. Hudson chooses a more conventionally historicist approach, studyingjohnson in relation to a wide range of eighteenth-century documents. All Rights Reserved.
