Notes

First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Sam Beckett, from whose first letter to me I quote: 'in Joyce the form of judgement more and more devoured its gist and the saying of all the saying of anything, in a way more consistent with Bruno's identification of contraries than with the intellectualism of Mallarmé.' Is the present position (mine) more to your liking? It is of course a blend. Warmly, David Sept '70. P. S. I hope yr sic eyes permit you to read this". The author, David Hayman is a literary critic and professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who participated in the publication of Joyce's complete manuscripts, and has also written a number of essays on Beckett's works.
