This event is in the past.
Many of the great works of literature, arranged by their authors’ names on our shelves, were first published without those names attached. This workshop will examine some of the important motives for anonymity and pseudonymity across the centuries. It will also reveal the creative uses of authorial concealment for novelists, poets and satirists.
John Mullan is Professor of English at University College London and a specialist in eighteenth-century literature. He is also a prolific broadcaster and journalist who writes on contemporary fiction for the Guardian.
Free entrance for CAMPUS members and students.
