2022 Launch of Volume and Lecture: The Literary Papers of the Reverend Jermyn Pratt (1723-1791)

7 July 2022 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 pm BST

This is a free hybrid event (Online via Zoom and In-person) and is open to Members and Non-Members.

The Literary Papers of the Reverend Jermyn Pratt (1723-1791)

  The Reverend Jermyn Pratt was a close friend of the poet Christopher Smart (1722-1771), who mentions Pratt and his sister Harriot in several of his poems, including the poem for which he is most famous, Jubilate Agno (1759-1763). But Jermyn Pratt was himself a highly idiosyncratic writer of comic and satirical literature. His often hilarious writings provide new insights into the distinctive literary culture in Norfolk and the ways the Anglican clergy participated in church and national politics. Pratt’s dramatic, poetic, and essayistic writings also complement the diary of James Woodforde (1740-1803), painting a vivid picture of the pressures and pleasures of parish life in rural Norfolk.   Edited by Ema Vyroubalová and James Robert Wood   The volume will be introduced in a lecture by Dr Min Wild, of the University of Plymouth, and both editors will also be in attendance to answer any questions that members may have.   To join the online lecture please register using the link below by 5 pm on Tuesday 5th July.

The volume is available to Pre-Order (non-members only) – visit our online shop
