In Response to: A Ritchie Boy

I would also like to thank the editors for the excellent article on Professor Victor Brombert, whose graduate course on Dickens and Flaubert I took in the early 1980s. He is a delightful lecturer.  My dissertation on wedding and tomb imagery in Joyce and Mallarme owed much to his critical theme of obsessive metaphor.
