Read full description of the books:


I haven't read any of the other books in the Enderby series but I am now convinced they are essential literature, for this fourth installation is one of the greatest novels of all time.

We follow the poet Enderby as he struggles in an Indiana adaptation of the life of William Shakespeare and his infamous 'dark lady', who may or may not be a negress. Throughout the book's span, Enderby is progressively mutated into a modern day shakespeare, and he falls in love with the titular dark lady, a one April Elgar (May Johnson). The book is effectively sandwiched by short stories, the protagonist of which is Shakespeare himself in the first, and the time-traveling Paley under the guise of a Norwich gentleman. Both stories add immense depth to the Shakespearean persona, and they serve to mirror him with Enderby, the poet.

Burgess is a masterful writer and constantly defies the logic of literature by speaking is phonetic and alternating narrators at will. A glorious novel. Highly recommended.
