Flann O'Brien : A critical introduction to his writings by Anne Clissmann
Dublin : Gill and Macmillan, 1975. First published in Ireland in 1975. Stated. Hardcover. 370 pages ; 23 cm. In original dust jacket with firm binding, clean and unmarked pages.
In the context of Anglo-Irish literature, Flann O'Brien must be considered next to Joyce and Beckett. But his importance is not simply within this context. He was a translator, newspaper columnist, humorist and a man of impressive learning whose writings covered almost every literary genre.
This critical introduction, the first full-length assessment of Flann O'Brien's writings, is extensive in scope. In it Anne Clissmann examines all his works, from At-Swim-Two-Birds, now widely acclaimed throughout the world, to his other novels, plays, newspaper columns and short stories including some virtually unknown material to which she has had access.
Throughout her critical study, she discusses O'Brien's major themes, influences and techniques, traces the development of his art and assesses the nature of his unique vision. Her book is a lucid and well-balanced appraisal of a writer whose work commands increasing attention, and will be invaluable both to students of modern Anglo-Irish literature and to the ever-growing body of Flann O'Brien enthusiasts.
