Review:

Mention in The Bookseller ( The Bookseller)

"[This is] the first book to focus on Morissey's lyrical output."
-Publishing News
( Publishing News)

mention in Times higher Education Supplement, 4 June 2009

"Hopps manages to tell Moz's life story in a way that educates even the most hardcore fans (like me). By comparing the artist to Romantic poets and incorporating references to film and other art forms, Hopps examines the former Smiths frontman with a critical eye and treats him as one of the most talented singer/songwriters of the last century. (And he is, isn't he?) Dive in, grab a highlighter and savor the plentiful footnotes."
-Whitney Matheson, USA Today's PopCandy

"Hopps gives [Morrissey] plenty of passionate, well-informed attention in The Pagaent of His Bleeding Heart,a stylish and seductive hardcover from Continuum that reflects the loveand devotion of its author to the subject's worldview and musicalexpression. This is not a rote biography or analysis of the shebeensand spielers with collaborators, but an ideal inquiry into theaesthetic and forces which shape Morrissey's lyrics, persona, and owninfluence on worldwide music culture."
-KEXP, Seattle, WA

"The best book-length explication of Morrissey's peculiar genius I've come across. Acute when it does address the music, it focuses mostly on M's lyrical and vocal strategies (coyness, flirtation, caesuras and suggestive trailings away, irruptions of non-sense such as animalistic/Tourettic/comedic growls, ascent into nonverbal raptures of yodeling falsetto), then explores how these particular ways with words announce and embody a particular way of walking through the world; a life stance and ethic. Hopps managed to convince me that there's hidden depths and often-missed mischief secreted within the later work's deceptive slightness and can't-be-arsed-ness. A majorly illuminating work." — Simon Reynolds



"It's the best book-length explication of Morrissey's peculiar genius I've come across." Simon Reynolds

(Simon Reynolds)

"Hopps puts Morrissey, who he describes as pop's greatest disturbance,in the same tradition as Oscar Wilde and the Romantics, for none ofwhom is a simple or literal reading possible." Reggie Chamberlain-King, http://iheartau.com/reviews/morrissey-the-pageant-of-his-bleeding-heart-by-dr-gavin-hopps/

"Claiming that Morrissey is the most literary singer in the historyof British popular music, and thus a serious artist working in a mediumwidely considered trivial, Hopps (theology, U. of St. Andrews, Scotland)compares his work to a number of canonical writers, among them Larkin,Beckett, Wilde, Hardy, and Christina Rossetti." http://www.entrepreneur.com/tradejournals/article/205550381.html

Descripción Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Morrissey is arguably the greatest disturbance popular music has ever known. Even more than the choreographed carelessness of punk and the hyperbolic gestures of glam rock and the New Romantics, Morrissey s early bookish ineptitude, his celebration of the ordinary, and his subversive endorsement of celibacy, abstinence and rock n roll revolutionised the world of British pop. As an increasingly pugnacious solo artist, he consistently adopts the outsider s perspective and dares us to confront genuinely uncomfortable subjects. In his brilliant and original book, Gavin Hopps examines the work of this compelling performer, whose intelligence, humour, suffering and awkwardness have fascinated audiences around the world for the last 25 years. Hopps traces the trajectory of Morrissey s career - from its beginning in the early 80s with the Smiths to the release of his latest album, Ringleader of the Tormentors - and outlines the contours and contradictions of the singer s elusive persona. The book illuminates Morrissey s coyness (how can he remain a mystery when he tells us too much?), his dramatised melancholy (surely more of a radical existential protest than the gimmick some believe it to be) and his complex attitudes towards loneliness and alienation, as well as his intriguing sense of the religious. In the course of this penetrating study of Morrissey s oeuvre, Hopps offers close readings of individual lyrics and illuminating comparisons with a range of literary figures - such as Lord Byron, Mary Shelley, George Eliot, Christina Rossetti, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett, Paul Celan and Philip Larkin. Morrissey: The Pageant of His Bleeding Heart , at once erudite and accessible, argues convincingly for Morrissey s inclusion in the pantheon of literary greats.
