Here Comes Everybody: An Introduction to James Joyce for the Ordinary Reader

£50.00

Product description

The writer Anthony Burgess had very clear opinions about the work of James Joyce, considering that the literary world was far too 'precious' in its assessment, and thus deterred the ordinary reader from exploring the Joycean world. His own view was that Joyce's books offered a broad invitation to all, to join in the pleasure he himself took in his created heroes and heroines. His characters should be viewed as a merry crowd "Everybody", issuing the call "Everybody come here", to everybody.... Billed as "An Introduction to James Joyce for the Ordinary Reader", this book offers an authoritative voice on the Irish author.

John Anthony Burgess Wilson, FRSL (1917-1993), who published under the name Anthony Burgess, was an English writer and composer. Although predominantly a comic writer, his dystopian satire "A Clockwork Orange" remains his best-known novel. However, he produced numerous other novels, including the "Enderby" quartet, and "Earthly Powers". He wrote librettos and screenplays, and was literary critic for several publications, including The Observer and The Guardian. He wrote studies of classic writers (notably James Joyce), lectured in phonetics, and translated" Cyrano de Bergerac", "Oedipus Rex", and the opera "Carmen". Burgess also composed over 250 musical works; he considered himself as much a composer as an author, although he enjoyed considerably more success with his writing.

Our copy is in excellent condition, with an unclipped dust jacket showing almost no signs of age or wear apart from some slight darkening to the spine, slight general grubbiness, and one 1 cm tear at the top of the front. The book itself, bound in blue-green cloth with titles etc in gilt on the spine, likewise is unmarked externally. Inside, the binding is tight with no loose pages; all pages clean and bright. A number '6268' has been neatly written at the top R/H corner of the front fep.
