Taking a line from James Joyce as his title, the author shows how art can be our compass in destitute times. He uses the works of Seamus Heaney, James Joyce, Rainer Maria Rilke, Wole Soyinka, and Iris Murdoch to illustrate how this can be done. ""A penetrating and astute survey of the possibilities of art for improving the sorry lot of man.""--The Irish Catholic. ""Courageous, unguarded, original... The book derives its authority and urgency from the sense that Mark Patrick Hederman is exploring [and] writing out of a real need.""--Dennis O'Driscoll.
