This extraordinary slim volume is comprised of the lectures given by the biographer of the "famous four" Dubliners, Richard Ellmann. Having written extensively upon Wilde, Joyce and Yeats, Ellmann adds on Beckett, as well, whose bio was done by Knoleson. He carefully compares and finds both similarities and conflicts in their philosophies, and in their literary styles. Among the four: beginning with the eariest, Wilde, and ending with Beckett, he covers more than 60 years of their literary output. An amazing feat of scholarly research, to be enjoyed and not forgotten for its illuminating insights into their unique lives !
