Dublin's Joyce

Dublin's Joyce Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most important books ever written on "Uylsses, Dublin's Joyce" established Hugh Kenner as a significant modernist critic. This pathbreaking analysis presents Uylsses as a "bit of anti-matter that Joyce sent out to eat the world." The author assumes that Joyce wasn't a man with a box of mysteries, but a writer with a subject: his native European metropolis of Dublin. "Dublin's Joyce" provides the reader with a perspective of Joyce as a superemely important literary figure without considering him to be the revealer of a secret doctrine.

Review:

"Professor Kenner brings to the study of Joyce a wide knowledge of Joycean backgrounds and a brilliant mind." Library Journal

Review:

"Mr. Kenner, who specializes in the symbolic aspects of Joyce's work, writes brilliantly, opening many avenues of thought." The Christian Science Monitor

Review:

"Hugh Kenner's brilliant study goes the narrower and deeper way of the specialists' specialist." The New York Times Book Review
