Pleasures of the Imagination, Samuel Johnson Illustrated (Hardback)Stefka Ritchie (author)
The contributors have also taken into account a striking characteristic of the mid-eighteenth century - that of the affinity between poetry and painting, in the words of Samuel Johnson, 'two sister arts', and the book has benefited from over fifty original illustrations by Dr Ana Stefanova, a psychologist and amateur artist and Svetlan Stefanov, a visual artist. As an inter-disciplinary project, the book has allowed its four contributors to broaden their critical perspective in a truly mid-eighteenth-century fashion, and travelling beyond their own fields of study, they have produced a truly exciting compilation.
