Beschreibung

Through examining the work of W. B. Yeats, James Joyce, and Samuel Beckett, Katherine Ebury shows cosmology had a considerable impact on modernist creative strategies, developing alternative reading models of difficult texts such as Finnegans Wake and 'The Trilogy'.

Ebury's book offers excellent observations on the origins and functions of a vast number of astronomical references she traces in Yeats, Joyce and Beckett, and the author constructively brings together and builds on the large number of recent studies on the scientific reading of her subjects. Cosmology and Modernism offers an enticing roadmap for novelistic astropoetics that will surely generate further explorations of the field. (Florian Kläger, Symbolism, October, 2016)
