Clutton-Brock, Alan Francis. "Interpretations of Ulysses." Review of Joyce, James,
Times Literary Supplement no. 1825,
(23 January 1937):
Compares JJ's method to that of post-impressionists, initially startling, but after time comprehensible. Commends styles of "Oxen," Scylla & Charybdis," "Nausicaa." "Ulysses is evidently the production of a man fascinated by language rather than by thought or observation." A "remarkable similarity between Mr. Joyce's compositions and the prose style of certain lunatics." "Ulysses.enables Mr. Joyce to exercise all his talent, his incredible virtuosity, to the full." "It is above all the profusion and fertility of language that will fascinate the reader." Clear that U is being evaluated in terms of "Work in Progress.".
Clutton-Brock, Alan Francis. "Mr. Joyce's Experiment." Review of Joyce, James,
Anna Livia Plurabelle,
Times Literary Supplement no. 1403,
(20 December 1928):
AF C-B was the son of the other C-B and an art critic. "The dissatisfaction of the Irish with the English language and their efforts to change and revivify it make one of the most curious chapters in the history of English letters, but none has ever gone so far and made so many changes as Mr. Joyce." ALP "is written in an outlandish dialect." J is "trying to bring back the English language to a period like the Elizabethan, when each neologism was a happy discovery and the spout of words flowed freshly and with exuberance." "It cannot be denied that Mr. Joyce does at moments achieve an astonishingly vigorous diction, and there is sometimes beauty in his writing; though it is a beauty that can only be guessed at, like that of a poem in a language which we only half know.".
Clutton-Brock, Alan Francis. Review of Joyce, James,
Times Literary Supplement no. 1345,
(10 November 1927):
"At first sight it seems strange that a writer of Mr Joyce's character, so despondent and so porofoundly unsentimental, and so concerned with an untraditional kind of prose, should produce such a poem as this: ["Alone"]." "This occasional poetry lives always upon the hights, and if had not to express the most elevated emotions it would not be written at all. Any other but such high and turbulent emotions Mr Joyce would probably have expressed in his prose writings." J is an "occasional" as opposed to a "professional" poet, therefore adopts the "diction" of others. There is an "urgent sweetness" in the poems.a "concrete quality" to the imagery, e.g. in "Bahnhofstrasse.".
