5.0 out of 5 stars A student reads a master- teacher, January 20, 2005
This review is from: Re Joyce (Paperback)
Burgess is a novelist of tremendous linguistic energy and inventiveness, one who searches out many worlds, scholarly and not. His career path seems much more ' foxlike' and scattered than does the hedgehog - like career in Joyce which seems to go increasingly toward the realization of one great system in literature. In this study of the work of Joyce he tells the life- story but concentrates more on introducing the common reader to Joyce's two large tomes, Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake. He writes with skill and sympathy and even the seasoned Joyce reader can learn much from his work. It is a valuable contribution to the vast Joycean scholarship which continues to grow and grow with the years.
