Book Description:

Samuel Johnson, one of the most renowned authors of the eighteenth-century, became virtually a symbol of English national identity in the century following his death in 1784. Nicholas Hudson's Samuel Johnson and the Making of Modern England examines his contribution to the creation of the modern English identity, focussing on his attitudes towards class, feminism, party politics, the public sphere, nationalism, and imperialism. This book offers an entirely fresh look at Johnson and on the nature of English nationhood.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Samuel Johnson, one of the most renowned authors of the eighteenth century, became virtually a symbol of English national identity in the century following his death in 1784. In Samuel Johnson and the Making of Modern England Nicholas Hudson argues that Johnson not only came to personify English cultural identity but did much to shape it. Hudson examines his contribution to the creation of the modern English identity, approaching Johnson s writing and conversation from scarcely explored directions of cultural criticism - class politics, feminism, party politics, the public sphere, nationalism and imperialism. Hudson charts the career of an author who rose from obscurity to fame during precisely the period that England became the dominant ideological force in the Western world. In exploring the relations between Johnson s career and the development of England s modern national identity, Hudson develops provocative arguments concerning both Johnson s literary achievement and the nature of English Nationhood.
