The Various Lives of Keats and Chapman and The Brother. Edited and introduced by Benedict Kiely. London: Hart-Davis, 1976. First Edition. Pp, 156. A very good copy in dust jacket.
First published as a column in the Irish Times, the hilarious escapades of Keats and Chapman (based on the Romantic poet and the translator of Homer respectively) that comprise this volume illuminate the extraordinary talent of Flann O’Brien (Brian O’Nolan). Also includes ‘The Brother’, O’Brien’s most lasting comic creation.
