Synopsis

Dr Johnson is often thought of as a strident, overbearing and far too clever conversationalist, but this offers a different perspective on him by looking through the eyes of his female acquaintances. Revealing the essential and unexpected Johnson, it also illuminates the lives of a cast of formidable 18th century heroines.
