Johnson, Writing, and Memory by Clingham Greg, Greg Clingham

This study demonstrates the importance of memory in Samuel Johnson's work. Greg Clingham argues that this concept of memory is derived from the process of historical and creative writing; it is embodied in works of literature and other cultural forms. He examines Johnson's writing; including his biographical writing, as it intersects with eighteenth-century thought on literature, history, fiction and law and its subsequent compatibility with and resistance to modern theory.
