6-8 December 2018, Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin
Call for Papers
Miss Edgeworth is at Abbotsford, and has been for some time; a little, dark, bearded, sharp, withered, active, laughing, talking, impudent, fearless, outspoken, honest, Whiggish, unchristian, good-tempered, kindly, ultra-Irish body. I like her one day, and damn her to perdition the next. She is a very queer character; particulars some other time.
John Gibson Lockhart, quoted in Christopher North: A Memoir of John Wilson.
