This is the blurb from the CBC Program Highlights, about the lecture series
(source of the book), _The Elsewhere Community_, by Hugh Kenner:
 
"Exile, identity and fantasy. In the 1997 Massey Lectures, the acclaimed
literary critic Hugh Kenner writes about the idea that people have a
constant need for stimulation from a cummunity encountered 'elsewhere'.
Kenner traces this from the Grand Tour of the 18th Century ... to the
self-imposed exile of modernist writers such as T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound and
James Joyce; to the disembodied world of the Internet.... Kenner's thinking
brings together literature, mathematics, science, computer programming and
popular culture. 'The dividing line between high and low culture is utterly
fictitious,' says Kenner. 'Genuine culture is neither high nor low; it
involves ideas you're happy to keep returning to for the rest of your
life'"-CBC program highlights.
