But as each author accomplished his task, it was in the service of the other.

Becket would evoke, on his canvasses of vast innuendo and through the interstices of conscious and unconscious thought, the richness that Joyce had made explicit in words and intricate structure."

The intellectual destiny that each of us has depends upon who gets the upper hand, knight or squire."
