"[John] Lucas confirmed that impression, saying of [BS] Johnson’s stint as poetry editor of the Transatlantic Review that “he behaved with great generosity as well as I think scrupulousness towards a lot of younger persons including myself who were sending him poems”. Lucas met Johnson in 1966, when, as a young lecturer at Nottingham University, he went to hear him give a talk there. On this occasion another aspect of Johnson’s personality was in evidence: “Johnson spent more or less the entire hour attacking the world of academe, and pointing out that people who were in the world of academe could be expected to understand nothing about literature at all”."
