About the author (2011)

Hugh Kenner has taught at the University of Georgia, The Johns Hopkins University and at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Canadian born, he attended the University of Toronto and Yale University. Since 1947 he has published more than twenty books, concentrating on the great Modernists (Joyce, Pound, Eliot, Beckett). Pound enjoined him, about 1949, that he has 'an obligation' to visit the great men of his own time; that injunction he has scrupulously fulfilled.
