A Sinking Island: The Modern English Writers by Hugh Kenner

The island, of course, is England. Having considered the modern writers of America in A Homemade World and Ireland in A Colder Eye, Kenner turns to the third of International Modernisms three provinces. His judgment is often harsh -- he argues that in the last quarter of the twentieth century theres no longer an English literature -- but his book is a pure delight in its pungent, lively, and thoughtful amalgam of anecdote and critical analysis, detective work and celebration.
