Most widely held works by Hugh Kenner
Dublin's Joyce by Hugh Kenner( Book )
50 editions published between 1955 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,592 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."

"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

The counterfeiters; an historical comedy by Hugh Kenner( Book )
19 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 987 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. Book jacket."--Jacket
