Reviewer: Mark O Connell Irish Studies Review from Republic of Ireland  
This is  overall  a persuasive and highly illuminating work of criticism. What is more noteworthy  though  is that it is actually a very enjoyable one. Hopper s enthusiasm for his subject is everywhere apparent. [...] With A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Post modernist  Keith Hopper has achieved what all good criticism sets out to do: he sends us back  with a reshaped frame of reference and a renewed sense of purpose  to the work of this enigmatic novelist .

In this second edition of a work first published i October 29, 2009
Reviewer: R. R. Joly CHOICE Reviews Online from Republic of Ireland  
In this second edition of a work first published in 1995  Hopper offers new critical scholarship and an expanded bibliography while maintaining his contention that O Brien can be properly assessed only as an early progenitor of postmodernism. Hopper succeeds splendidly  displaying an impressive acumen for poststructuralist analysis [...]. This study is impressive  even brilliant  in its scope  thoroughness  mastery  and persuasiveness. Not to be missed is its clear delineation of postmodernism as a valid and defined literary approach.  Summing Up: Highly recommended

Reviewer: R diger Imhof Irish Times from Republic of Ireland  
Hopper makes his point with enviable ingenuity and pervasive force. He wears his stupendous erudition and expertise lightly and writes in a style that is sheer delight. [ ] Hopper has managed that rarest of feats: a scientific study from which both the expert and the layman can profit copiously .  R diger Imhof  Irish Times

The highest praise I can give a critical book is May 1, 2009
Reviewer: J. Hillis Miller University of California Irvine from Republic of Ireland  
The highest praise I can give a critical book is that it makes me want to read or re read the works discussed. Keith Hopper s book on Flann O Brien does that. He makes reading Flann O Brien sound like an exciting and productive thing to do .
