About the Author

Hugh Kenner (1923-2003) was one of America's great literary critics. He wrote on a range of subjects that includes Ezra Pound, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, T. S. Eliot, and geodesic domes.

Reviews

Kenner's work is an achievement of a polymath: it ranges from Jonathan Swift to Flaubert, and from Dickens to T. S. Eliot, circling around its two main concerns: Joyce's Ulysses and the death of objectivity as a privileged style in modern literature.
As always, Kenner is original, provocative, stimulating, occasionally perverse, and immensely readable . . . The book offers important new insights into Joyce's art.
The volume is easy to handle and a delight to read. And Kenner's leaping wit, his metaphors, his transitions from insight to insight, his lively attention to Joyce's invention these qualities make it difficult, if you pick it up one evening, not to finish it before turning off the light.

"An original and entertaining study of, chiefly, "Ulysses.".. This is a most stimulating book."-Anthony Burgess
