“Burgess has written a study of the most brilliant and humane of twentieth-century humanists.” (Philip Toynbee - The Observer)
“Recognizing the coming and cosmic in Joyce, [Burgess] proceeds with his self-imposed task of unraveling meaning by scrutinizing the layers of a mind that was encyclopedic in dimension. . . . He has defined the perimeter of Joyce's adventure in both Ulysses
and Finnegan's Wake
. . . . It took Burgess to place Joyce's satire in its proper orbit.” (Saturday Review)
