The counterfeiters; an historical comedy by Hugh Kenner( Book )

19 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wide-ranging enough to encompass Buster Keaton, Charles Babbage, Jonathan Swift's hyper-civilized horses, and Alan Turing-a mathematician with a penchant for riding a bicycle while wearing a gas mask-The Counterfeiters is one of Hugh Kenner's greatest achievements. In this fascinating work of literary and cultural criticism, Kenner seeks the roots and results of mankind's quest to both reproduce and improve upon the natural world (a Victorian clockwork duck that can eat and quack), and even himself (a computer that can solve equations faster than we can). The intermingling of art and science, of man and machine, of machine and art, is the heart of this book. With his characteristically accessible style and wit, Kenner brings together history, literature, science, and art to find the personal in what is an increasingly counterfeit world.

"Kenner traces the quest for elsewhere as it manifests itself in various modes of "travel," from the eighteenth-century English tradition of a Grand Tour of the continent, to literary meetings of the mind (Milton's visit to Galileo, T.S. Eliot's to Ezra Pound, Kenner's own visit to Beckett), to today's planet-wide Internet journeys, free from all physical limitations. As he chronicles this Elsewhere Community built of people exploring the unknown, Kenner illuminates how this passion has infused literature, from Homer and Dante to Dickens and Joyce

Sentences by Charles O Hartman( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The noted literary scholar and poet Charles O. Hartman discovered a book titled Sentences for analysis and parsing, which was used at the Thayer Street Grammar School in Providence, RI. Harman took this somewhat didactic text and ran it through the TRAVESTY computer program developed by Hugh Kenner and Joseph O'Rourke. Working with Kenner, Hartman then ran the result through his own DIASTEST program, based on the "diastic" writings of poet Jackson Mac Low. The result is a wonderfully eccentric poetry that resembles something between Gertrude Stein and Surrealist automatic writing"--Back cover
