Jack Yeats by Bruce Arnold( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jack Yeats (1871-1957) stands as a giant figure in Irish twentieth-century art. An isolated artist throughout his life, Yeats dominated solely through talent and the inventiveness of his paintings. This major biography tells the full story of the artist's life and analyses his prodigious output. This included not only some one thousand paintings, and vast numbers of illustrations, comic cartoons, drawings, and watercolours, but also seven novels and nine plays. An innately original man, Yeats eschewed all movements, took no pupils, taught only by example. Yet he exerted a fundamental and fascinating influence on Irish culture during his long and diverse life. Based on extensive research among primary sources, this book describes the life of the son of the portrait painter, John Butler Yeats, and younger brother of the poet, William Butler Yeats. Born in London, Jack spent his formative years in his grandparent's home in Ireland. His first show was held in England, but the young artist was inexorably drawn to Ireland where he created in drawings and paintings an Irish spirit and language that increasingly captured and glorified the heroism, mystery, myths, and legends of the Irish people. This book provides a compelling portrait of the complex and enigmatic artist whose reputations and artistic vision have become increasingly admired in the years since his death. -- Publisher description

The scandal of Ulysses : the sensational life of a twentieth-century masterpiece by Bruce Arnold( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before its first publication, Ulysses, the greatest novel of the twentieth century, was the cause of scandal. James Joyce's prose was denounced as obscene, and the book was banned in the United States and Great Britain. Controversy surrounded the work throughout Joyce's lifetime, and he claimed that the book would keep scholars busy for centuries. Joyce was right. The book has become a veritable minefield for scholars, and has led to one of the world's most

Swift : an illustrated life by Bruce Arnold( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who was Jonathan Swift? Bruce Arnold's book examines this enigmatic figure in the light of his relationships - with his lover Esther Van Homrigh ('Vanessa'), his ward Esther Johnson ('Stella'), his patron Sir William Temple, and his male friends Congreve, Bolingbroke, Harley, Addison, Thomas Sheridan, and others. Though often criticized as a misanthrope, Swift can only be properly understood if we recognize his love of humanity and his capacity for friendship. Arnold traces this theme from Swift's youth in Ireland to his literary and political apprenticeship at Moor Park in Surrey, and on through the years of greatness - the brilliant satires and pamphlets, the Church diplomacy at the Court of Queen Anne, and the great writings of his maturity as Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin: the Drapier's Letters, A Modest Proposal, and Gulliver's Travels. Swift's long and varied life is illustrated through contemporary engravings of the places he lived in, the people he knew, and the figures who defined his age."--BOOK JACKET
The scandal of Ulysses : the life and afterlife of a twentieth century masterpiece by Bruce Arnold( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Bruce Arnold's The Scandal of Ulysses first appeared, twelve years ago, it was described as "the sensational life of a twentieth-century masterpiece" and "the definitive biography". In 1992, with the ending of copyright, the sensational, scandalous part of the life of Ulysses seemed to be drawing to a close. This was far from the truth. A new phase was about to open with the change in the law on copyright. And the book, in the mid-1990s, was plunged once more into conflict with the James Joyce Estate going to the courts to protect its rights." "This revised edition brings the story up to date. It describes the sad fate of John Kidd, once the knight in shining armour challenging the Joyce establishment, now discredited in Boston, without his James Joyce Center and with no edition of Ulysses to offer; the resurrection of Hans Walter Gabler, whose reputation was assaulted by Kidd and seemed irrevocably damaged, but was then recovered and made whole again; the battle between Danis Rose and the James Joyce Estate over yet another edition of the book, ending up in the most famous copyright court case of the 1990s; and how a new army of Joyceans took the place of the old."--BOOK JACKET
