Hesiod's Theogony and Works and Days: A Bilingual Edition

Uncommon Prayer

"With the fine artistry, precision, erudition, wit, and lexical magic we have come to expect from Johnson."

Michael Sowder, 15 Bytes

Made Flesh: Sacrament and Poetics in Post-Reformation England

"Kimberly Johnson's dual identity as scholar and poet animates this strikingly original book—not only in its limpid, lively prose, but also in its resonant reappraisal of a seemingly familiar subject. Early modern devotional poetry has often been analyzed in terms of its theological and ecclesiological contexts; the real strength and purchase of Johnson's book lies in its integration of this contextual material with a searching investigation of the formal strategies of poetry as such."

Molly Murray, Columbia University

Before the Door of God: An Anthology of Devotional Poetry

"The painstaking work of two poet-scholars, Jay Hopler and Kimberly Johnson, the collection promises to be a crucial source text for scholars, a course text for students and a manual for seekers who wish to find prayers that fit their condition and cast of mind."

Cleveland Plain Dealer

Virgil's Georgics: A Poem of the Land

"Kimberly Johnson's superbly colourful, rhythmic and readable new translation...finds a way of feeding the Virgilian strain of English verse – from Milton to Wordsworth and beyond – back into her lines."
