Comprised of approximately 1600 notes covering some 7000 “specific points”, each keyed to the pagination of the Penguin paperback and two standard hardback editions. “This guide to Under the Volcano is an item-by-item discussion of the innumerable, often obscure details of Malcom Lowry’s novel. As the authors point out in their introduction, Under the Volcano is ‘not a novel with one big idea but a book which is constantly shifting its ground, one which constantly evades the reader.’ In responding to the profusion of elements in the novel, the authors serve not only the new reader but also those already familiar with the text who are searching for fresh insights.”
