New online exhibition: Samuel Johnson

In celebration of the three-hundredth anniversary of his birth in 1709, this new exhibition at the Beinecke Library examines the life of Samuel Johnson—author, critic, and above all conversationalist—as it was written after his death.

Visit the exhibition between October 9 through mid December 2009 at the Beinecke Library or view the online exhibition.
Drawing on James Boswell’s correspondence and the manuscript of his “Life of Johnson,” as well as newspapers, prints, and works written and annotated by Hester Thrale Piozzi and others, the exhibition explores the tensions of memory and identity found in the competing lives of one of England’s first literary celebrities.lifeof
