From Library Journal:

This curious, contentious book approaches Joyce's Portrait by way of revaluating "the widespread, orthodox version of Modernism." Buttigieg's aim is to make Portrait "available again to an audience that is not wedded to the supremacy . . . of the received version of Modernism." Unfortunately, the monolithic view of Modernism he rages against doesn't exist, and at this late date his relentless attacks on the New Criticism seem merely antiquated. The author's argument that Portrait offers a "critique of the romantic imagination" and his discussion of the novel's religious context hardly constitute new critical departures. The "different perspective" offered here contains a good deal of shadow-boxing and not much of substance. Keith Cushman, English Dept., Univ. of North Carolina, Greensboro
