"Opening with an explanation of the effect of the printing press on book culture, Hugh Kenner's study of Flaubert, Joyce, and Beckett explores the way this technological advancement altered the way fiction could be written." "Using this as his starting point, Kenner details the ways the three authors listed in the title found new possibilities for writing in unique, yet connected ways: Flaubert as the "Comedian of the Enlightenment," categorizing man's intellectual follies; Joyce as the "Comedian of the Inventory," with his meticulously constructed lists; and Beckett as the "Comedian of the Impasse," eliminating facts and writing novels about a man writing."--BOOK JACKET

Chuck Jones : a flurry of drawings by Hugh Kenner( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Creator of the monomaniacal Wile E. Coyote and his endlessly elusive prey, the Road Runner, Chuck Jones has been responsible for many classics of animation featuring Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, and Elmer Fudd. Hugh Kenner, master wordsmith and technophile, reveals in cartoon-like sequences the irrepressible humor and profound reflection that shape Chuck Jones's work." "Kenner also x-rays the inner world of cartooning, from its beginnings as a technological innovation, through its heyday as six-minute full-animation shorts for the movies, to its eventual shift to television, where Jones animated features such as The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and Rikki Tikki Tavi." "Unlike Walt Disney, Chuck Jones and his fellow animators at Warner Bros. were not interested in cartoons that mimicked reality. Instead, they pursued the reality of the imagination, the Toon world where believability is more important than realism and where movement is the ultimate aesthetic arbiter. By describing the erudition and kinetic humor in great works like What's Opera, Doc? and Duck Dodgers in the 24 1/2 century, Hugh Kenner offers a new understanding not only of cartooning culture but also of art's relationship to technology, criticism, freedom, and imagination."--Jacket
The mechanic muse by Hugh Kenner( Book )

Historical fictions : essays by Hugh Kenner( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Historical Fictions Hugh Kenner applies his extraordinarily nimble mind and unrivaled style to the alchemy of speech turning into language, language becoming art, and art finally settling down as culture. A variety of literary topics are addressed in forty-three lively, often humorous, and wonderfully informative essays. With his trenchant, famously entertaining touch, Kenner explores the role of counting in literature (Joyce and St. Augustine shared a preference for the number eleven); the extravagant efforts through the ages to preserve the Iliad and the Odyssey (focusing on Ezra Pound's contributions); and Tom Wolfe's prose through the purple decades (Kenner calls him "the nonchalant master of the neon-piped sentence"). Other writers who fall under Kenner's appraising gaze include Flann O'Brien, H.D., Ernest Hemingway, Sylvia Plath, Dante, Leslie Fiedler, Wallace Stevens, Saul Bellow, William Carlos Williams, Samuel Beckett, and Vladimir Nabokov

Sentences by Charles O Hartman( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 84 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
