Dublin's Joyce by Hugh Kenner( Book )

49 editions published between 1955 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Amazon.com

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

19 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 990 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.

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 80 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
