ABOUT THE BOOK

 

If you read or write short stories, this is the valuable, entertaining, necessary book for you. 

 

Frank O'Connor's reputation as a master of the short story is undisputed. Now, applying his skill, awareness, and uncompromising standards to the work of otherness, the brilliant writer proves to be, as well, a perceptive critic of this special art. Here, stemming from his lectures on the art of the story, are provocative and illuminating studies of Chekhov, Maupassant, Turgenev, Kipling, Joyce, Mansfield, D. H. Lawrence, A. E. Coppard, and Hemingway―each filled with stimulating comments and insights which could spring only from the mind of a distinguished craftsman. 

 

  "The lonely voice" is that of the short story writer, who utilizes his medium as a private art intended to satisfy the standards of the individual, solitary, critical reader. Throughout these essays, each of which focuses upon one of the great masters, O'Connor attempts at an understanding of this special craft and offers telling comparisons with other literary forms. He particulary emphasizes the demands of the short-story form, for its very brevity is its greatest challenges, as "a whole lifetime must be crowded into a few minutes" and "those minutes must be carefully chosen indeed, and lit by an unearthly glow, one that enables us to distinguish present, past, and future as though they were all contemporaneous."

 

  Here is literary criticism at its finest―critical and historical comments on the craft of the short story which will be of value and interst to all who are concerned, as either writers or readers of short stories.

 

FRANK O'CONNOR (pseudonym of Michael O'Donovan) was born in Cork, Ireland, in 1903. Though he says that he received no education worth mentioning, he has spent a considerable portion of his life in educating others, and his present book is based on a course of lectures he gave at Stanford University in 1961.

  Mr. O'Connor's first published book was Guests of the Nation, a volume of short stories. He later published novels, several additional volumes of the tales, The Mirror in the Roadway (a study of the modern novel), verse, travel books, a study of Michael Collins and the Irish Revolution, and the autobiographical An Only Child. His latest critical book was Shakespeare's Progress. He has lived in the United Stated since 1952 and taught at Harvard as well as at Northwestern University. He is a Litt.D. of Dublin University. Readers of The New Yorker, Holiday, and Esquire are familiar with Mr. O'Connor's stories and sketches.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 Here, for the first time in one volume, is a full-length portrait of James Joyce, the man and his achievement, and a new, truly comprehensive survey of literary criticism about his works. It includes many fascinating details about his life―his rift with the Church, his alienation from Ireland, his stormy friendships―along with important previously unpublished letters.

  The authors offer perceptive guidance to Joyce's writings through systematic interpretations of each work, clarifying obscure passages. It is essential reading for anyone interested in Joyce as a man, as an artist, and as a major figure of the twentieth century.

  

 "Well-informed , perceptive, and enormously helpful...full of interest and stimulation."―David Daiches

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

The main question for students of Joyce, says the editor of this volume, is no longer “What did he say?” but “How did he say it?” In this third selection from the latest research and study on the Irish writer, new biographical, critical, and historical findings are assembled. These essays represent new discoveries and suggest new directions for Joyce scholarship. Although each is important in itself, taken together the contributions give a significant picture of the state of Joyce studies today.

  Contributors to the present volume include John J. Slocum, Herbert Cahoon, Joseph Prescott, William Empson, Richard M. Kain, and Ruth von. Phul. Facsimile reproductions of manuscript pages of “Gas from a Burner” and a photograph of Joyce by Berenice Abbott are included in the illustrations to the book.

  In the present volume we find a previously unpublished fragment of a Joyce story, important new material on Joyce’s broadsides, including manuscript pages of “Gas from a Burner,” a detailed examination of the numerous changes Joyce made in manuscript and proofs in characterizing Molly Bloom, speculation on the connection between Joyce’s personal life and the theme of Ulysses, a deliberate parallel between Hamlet and an episode of Ulysses, discussions of the influence of Ibsen and Blake, the source of the sermon on Hell, an elucidation of some of the Dublin and other Irish allusions in Joyce’s work, and an examination of the structure of Joyce’s writings. Each essay presents a new facet of the curious individual that was Joyce, and all collectively give the reader a better opportunity to see the whole man.

  Because of its wide variety, the collection will interest everyone who enjoys reading and discussing modern literature. It will be particularly gratifying to the layman who desires more information to understand a difficult writer. And, finally, the volume will give the specialist an immediate and comprehensive glance at the direction of Joyce studies.

 

MARVIN MAGALANER has taught at Columbia University and New York University. He is presently Associate Professor of English at The City College of New York and editor for The James Joyce Society. He is author Time of Apprenticeship: The Fiction of Young James Joyce, and co-author (with R. M. Kain) of Joyce: The Man, the Work, the Reputation. Mr. Magalaner edited the first two Joyce Miscellanies.

ABOUT THE BOOK


The interpretation of James Joyce’s Ulysses has been going on now for nearly forty years; few novels have been questioned so deeply, so persistently, and on so impressive a range of topics. And yet, as any reader of the novel knows, the danger of losing one’s way in the obscurities of Joyce’s prose, the intricacy of his references, remains as great as ever. How ought we to read Ulysses? Should we pick our way slowly, passing over not even the slightest detail for fear of denying ourselves the richness of the novel, or push doggedly forward, holding to the main scheme and leaving the difficult loose ends for those with more erudition—and patience? What, in short, is the most economical and yet rewarding way to approach the book?
  Mr. Adams attempts an answer to such questions by investigating the consistency, that is, the texture, of Ulysses. By identifying some of the raw materials that went into the novel, materials taken from turn-of-the-century Dublin public records, newspapers, reminiscences, and other sources, and then comparing these originals with the finished text, he is able to define some of the ways in which the book was put together. As Mr. Adams observes, once the reader knows the basic materials Joyce started with, and has some idea of the quality of Joyce’s mind, he can at least begin to separate the surfaces from the symbols—the things which were put into the novel because they were social history, local color, or municipal detail, from the things which represent abstract concepts of special import to the novel.
  Having examined the transformations which these raw materials underwent in the mind of Joyce, Mr. Adams discusses the author’s artistic intent in the work and proposes what he thinks is the best way to read Ulysses. When we know that many of Joyce’s puzzles have merely private answers, or none at all, we are in a position to see how the book works, by deliberately frustrating the reader’s conscious mind, to release a passionate and visionary perception of earth’s sacramental vulgarity.
  Readers who have been confused by previous elaborate, wire-drawn symbolic systems, and readers who have simply been confused by Ulysses itself, will find Surface and Symbol a welcome guide to the great labyrinth.
  Richard Ellmann, Northwestern University, says of Mr. Adams's Surface and Symbol  “. . . he explains a lot of things that were incomprehensible, he traces a multitude of sources, he explores the relation of fact and fiction with great devotion and ingenuity. Everyone will have to reconsider his position about Ulysses.” 
  ROBERT M. ADAMS, who is Professor of English at Cornell university, has taught at the University of Wisconsin and at Rutgers University. He is the author of Stendhal: Notes on a Novelist; Liberal Anglicanism; Ikon: John Milton and the Modern Critics; and Strains of Discord.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

An enlightening study of three writers, Flaubert, Joyce and Beckett: The Stoic Comedians begins with an explanation of the effect of the printing press on books. The "book as book" has been removed from the oral tradition by such features as prefaces, footnotes, and indexes. Books have become voiceless in some sense—they are to be read silently, not recited aloud. How this mechanical change affected the possibilities of fiction is Kenner's subject.

Each of the three featured authors approached this situation in a unique, yet connected way: 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 alone writing.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Based on both scholary research and the author's own experience in teaching Joyce, this general survey satisfies a need that has not been filled by numerous more specialized analyses. The complexity of Joyce's writing and the range of his learning are here approached from a consistent criticial viewpoint that connects his experiments with the main currents of English and European literature. The book opens with a chapter on Joyce's early life in Ireland, since the experiences of his youth provided the raw materials for all of his major works. An appraisal of Joyce's early poetry and youthful esthetic is followed by lengthy discussions of Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and Ulysses, as well as integrated consideration of such lesser works as Stephen Hero and Exiles. A brief survey of Joyce's last book, Finnegans Wake, examines the critical questions raised by that notoriously difficult work.

 

This assessment of James Joyce's achievement emphasizes his central position in modern literature. The entire arc of Joyce's career is traced in a way that places his various books in relation to each other. Presented against the background of his life, they are seen as actually a recapitulation of some of the major movements in nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature. A Selected Bibliography with annotations serves as a useful guide through the maze of Joyce scholarship.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Finnegan's Wake is a bafflingly complex work,  into which its author ported everything he knew. Even before its final publication as a book, in 1939, readers of Finnegans Wake were looking for clues to guide them through its mazes. 

 

Since all the language in the book, including the Gaelic, are masked and twisted, the eat is often a better interpreter than the eye in understanding the convolution of the language. Thus an ear that is attuned tot he sounds, cadences, vocabulary, and syntax of the Gaelic can determine, for example, that the phrase "Dorsan from Dunshanagan" is actually "Grasshopper from Ant's Fort" [Dorsán from Dún Seángain].

 

Mr. O Hehir has that kind of ear. Combining rare proficiency in Gaelic with equal proficiency in Joyce, he identifies and interprets all the Gaelicisms that Joyce used, and arranges them in the same simple and logical format employed in Helmut Bonheim's Lexicon of the German in Finnegans Wake [California, 1967]

 

Irish Words and phrases are listed successively as they occur according to the conventional page and line numbering established by Clive Hart's Concordance. The entries are arranged in three columns. In column one, the Irish or Irish-derived word or phrase is identified beside its page and line number. In column two, the conventional Irish spelling of the original is given, along with a simplified phonetic approximation of the pronunciation. In the third column, the word of phrase is translated into English, with explanation notes as required. Although Joyce's use of Irish is by no means always so straightforward as this arrangement suggests, anomalies are adapted to his pattern as conveniently and economically as possible. 

 

The main glossary is augmented by "Supplementary Notes," which take up certain matters that occur frequently in the book, such as variations on the Irish names for Dublin.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

James Joyce's Dubliners, states Peter K. Garrett, "leaves behind the rhetoric of nineteenth-century ficition and concentrates intead on that precise rendering of the object which became the basis of much modern poetry as well as prose. " Recogninzing the importance of Joyce's achievement, the contributors to this collection of essays offer a provocative analysis of the fifteen separate, yet thematically unified, narratives of Dubliners. They provide a wide range of views on its structure and symbolism, its central theme of paralysis, and its portrayal of what Garrett calls "the city out of whose shabby reality Joyce wrought . . . an important character in the history of his art."

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

"I have written memories but not memories and touched only lightly on th e politics of my day. Thees are now radically and happily outmoded in the Dublin of today. But I have found an autobiographical element unavoidable and have diverged far from my original purpose in attempting to live over again in the climate which Joyce and I one inhabited, nd to breathe airs whose currents do not obviously blow through his writing."

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

"This is the most successful single study to date of Joyce’s often undervalued collection of short stories illustrating moral paralysis in turn-of-the-century Dublin. Unlike ealier critics, Beck, an emeritus member of the faculty of Lawrence University as well as a published novelist, considers each of the 15 stories on its own merits, in terms of the artistic achievement each represents. Time and again, he convincingly demonstrates the limitations inherent in reading Dubliners solely as a prelude to Joyce’s later work. . . . He has many wise things to say about the stories and their author. This book belongs in every library serving students of modern literature." Literary Journal.

 

"This is an important work and may well become the standard departure point for all future critical studies of Dubliners.” The Virginia Quarterly

 

"Certainly this book is a necessary addition to any Joyce library." Choice

 

"Beck’s Joyce’s Dubliners is a significant study; it offers the first full scale evaluation of Joyce’s techniques as short story writer in a series of interesting and often very sensitive analyses of the Dubliners narratives. And not the least of its virtues is that it is as well  written as it is highly readable."  Modern Language Journal

NOTES ON CONTRIBUTORS

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

There are fifteen stories in the early volume which Joyce based on life in his native city: in this collection of essays each story is discussed by a distinguished critic of Joyce's work. The editor has attemted to impose no uniformity of approach on his fifteen contributors, but has preferred to encourage diversity of method. Attention is given to such varying aspects of Dubliners as social criticism, symbolism, mythic parallels, religious allegory, and political satire. The writers have obviously all enjoyed their task, and the book as a whole emphasizes once again the richness of Joyce's creative ability.

  The editor has contributed a short introduction, while an appendix provides explanations of many of Joyce's local and literary allusions.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

This comprehensive list of allusions found in James Joyce's modern classic, Ulysses, is in itself a classic and is a feat of literary scholarship of unprecedented magnitude. In brief, this book is a copiously annotated list of Joyce's allusions in such areas as literature, philosophy, theology, history, and the fine arts. So awesome an undertaking would not have been possible without the prior work of such persons as Stuart Gilbert, Joseph Prescott, William York Tindall, M.J.C. Hodgart, Mabel Worthington, and many others. But the present list is more than a compilation of previously discovered allusions, for it contains many allusions that have never been suggested before, as well as some that have only been partially or mistakenly identified in earlier publications.

In preparing this work, the author has kept its usefulness to the reader foremost in mind. He often refreshed the reader's memory in concerning the context of an allusion, since its context, in one sense or another, is always the guide to its function in the novel. The entire list is fully cross-referenced and keyed by page and line to both the old and new Modern Library editions of Ulysses. In addition, the index is prepared in such a way that it indexes not only the List but also the novel itself.

The purpose of allusion in a literary work is essentially the same as that of all other types of metaphor -- the development and revelation of character, structure, and theme -- and, when skillfully used, it does all of these simultaneously. Joyce's use of allusion is distinguished from that of other authors not by its purposes, but by its extent and thoroughness. Ulysses involves dozens of allusive contexts, all continually intersecting, modifying, and qualifying one another. Here again Joyce's uniqueness and complexity lie not in his themes or characters, nor in his basic methods of developing them, but in his accepting the challenge of an Olympian use of his chosen methods. The value of this volume to Joyce scholars and students is obvious; however, its usefulness to anyone who reads Ulysses is as great, if not greater. It can truly be the key to this difficult but rewarding novel.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

THIS SEVENTH VOLUME in THE CENTERS OF CIVILIZATION SERIES deals with Dublin in the period of its recent glory when it was at once the scene of an astonishing literary revival and of a dramatic war of independence. The city has been the liveliest literary center of the twentieth century, producing the best poet (William Butler Yeats), the best novelist (James Joyce), and the best playwright (John Millington Synge) in English, in addition to developing a native theatre (the Abbey Theatre) known throughout the world. Dublin during the same time was the tragic battleground of the fight for in- dependence from England and of the ensuing Civil War.

 

To those who have long known and understood the city which is Dublin, this combination of enthusiastic and vigorous activities is no great surprise. To others who may be mystified by the very spirit that is Irish, Richard M. Kain's evaluation will be especially enlightening. There has always been a unique combination of sentiment, humor, and cynicism in the Irish temperament. "In the play of imagination," says the author, "in whimsicality and pathos, in the gift of words and the turn of speech, the Dubliner has no equal."

 

In this book, which is the first to relate the cultural achievement of the Irish Renaissance to the many traditions of earlier Irish and English culture, one will find the haunting melodies of Celtic verse, the bitter irony of Jonathan Swift, the resounding ora- tory of patriots, and the wit and gossip of artists and eccentrics, each of which has contributed a strand to the nation's rich artistic flowering.

 

In serious fashion, and yet in a manner as properly humorous as the Irish themselves. Professor Kain discusses personalities, politics, humor. and the achievements of twentieth-century Dublin. He has added a valuable chronology of literature and political events which took place between 1885 and 1941.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

For this definitive collection of Pound's Literary Essays, his friend (and English editor) T. S. Eliot chose material from five earlier volumes: Pavannes and Divisions (1918), Instigations (1920), How to Read (1931), Make It New (1934), and Polite Essays (1937). 33 pieces are arranged in three groups: "The Art of Poetry," "The Tradition," and "Contemporaries."

 

Eliot wrote in his introduction: "I hope that this volume will dem- onstrate that Pound's literary criticism is the most important con- temporary criticism of its kind . . . perhaps the kind we can least afford to do without . . . the refreshment, the revitalization and 'making new' of literature in our time."
