Abstract
Should we blame Patchen's work on Joyce? On drugs? I see here largely a category-smashing linguistic virtuosity. There are lots of lovely word-plays, like "moral torportude" (23) and "eavesdripper" (24). One clear reference to Aesop comes in the title "The Wolf That Cried Ohboy Ohboy" (22). This is demanding reading: is it worth it? I have found several versions of the paperback of this book. I was surprised to find it available in hardback.
