The Elsewhere Community
Written by Hugh Kenner
Publication Date January 01, 1998
Acclaimed literary critic Hugh Kenner examines Western culture's insatiable need for stimulation encountered elsewhere - from the eighteenth century's Grand Tour, to the self-imposed exile of modernist writers, to the disembodied global journeys the Internet avails us today. Kenner brings to this fascinating study knowledge of a wide array of disciplines. Hugh Kenner has written on topics ranging from geodesic domes to Bugs Bunny, but is perhaps best known for The Pound Era, his definitive study of Ezra Pound's life and work.
Hugh Kenner was a teacher and author 25 books, including The Pound Era, Dublin's Joyce, and the 1997 CBC Massey Lectures, The Elsewhere Community. He died in 2003.
