Published on the occasion of Samuel Johnson's Tercentenary Year, this book analyses the structure and function of each literary allusion identified in A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland (1775). Johnson's familiarity with the classics and other literatures is thereby manifested in a variety of ways, with a powerful personal voice and, no less important, looking for reader involvement. Allusion, as contended in this monograph, is indeed an integral part of the formal artistry and intellectual depth of the Journey, thus contributing to making Johnson's Scottish travelogue what it is - a major exponent of Travel Literature. Dr Agustin Coletes Blanco teaches translation and travel writing at the University of Oviedo in Spain. He is also an honorary research fellow of Hull University in Britain. He has published widely on literary and cultural reception and on British travellers in Northern Spain. He is the editor and Spanish translator of Johnson's Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland and of Byron's Mediterranean Letters and Poems."
