Maurice Beebe, IVORY TOWERS AND SACRED FOUNTS; THE ARTIST AS HERO IN FICTION FROM GOETHE TO JOYCE, New York, New York University Press, 1964, 323 pages.

The related themes of the divided self, art as compensation, and the principle of distance appear frequently in succeeding confessional novels. Most of the heroes are so self-absorbed that they have difficulty getting outside themselves and hence are naturally at odds with their environment.

p. 54
