Citation: Margery Fee. "The Canonization of Two Underground Classics: Howard O'Hagan's Tay John and Malcolm Lowry's Under the Volcano." In Silence Made Visible: Howard O'Hagan and Tay John. Ed, Fee. Toronto: ECW, 1992. 85-91.
Abstract: The reception of O'Hagan's Tay John and that of Lowry's Under the Volcano is compared. Although both authors were familiar with avant-garde modernist writing and art, O'Hagan buried his sophisticated allusions and presented himself, not as a well-educated lawyer, but as a "mountain man." Lowry appealed to a much wider audience.
