'Joyce dissolved mechanism in literature as successfully as Einstein destroyed it in physics,' wrote Alfred Kazin. 'He confirmed that the cloth of fiction might relaxation upon as annoying a distribution and as soft a stability of its components as any poem. Joyce's ardour for shape, actually, is the key of his growth as a novelist. He sought to convey the biggest attainable volume of human existence less than the self-discipline of the staring at brain, and the mark of his good fortune is that he gave an epic shape to what is still invisible to so much novelists.... Joyce potential many stuff to various humans; for me his value has continually been essentially an ethical one. He used to be, might be, the final guy in Europe who wrote as though artwork have been worthy a human life.... via residing for his artwork he might but have given others a trust in paintings worthy dwelling for.'

However, when Scott's left flank guard - Captain Turner Crooker's company of the 9th US Infantry - emerged upstream of the bridge, they saw the British guns apparently isolated, and forded the chest-deep water to reach an area of open ground to the north where they were in turn spotted by Horton's dragoons. Unsupported infantry was too much of a temptation for a good cavalryman, and Horton ordered an immediate charge across the open field as the Americans on the far bank watched in horror. However, Crooker kept his cool; his company fired a volley then retreated to take shelter in a farmhouse whence they kept up a steady fire, bringing down eight horses and wounding four dragoons, although the British guns escaped.
He reorganizes his line with reinforcements under Lt. Col. Hercules Scott, including the 103rd Regiment, as Porter's Brigade forms up on the left of the American line. •IS] SCOTT BROWN 5 Drummond continues with his frontal counterattacks in a desperate bid to regain his guns. In the middle of the fighting Scott's Brigade tries to intervene and moves west along Lundy's Lane being fired upon by both sides until it breaks in confusion and re-forms west of Porter's position.

E n t i t l e d Colonel Miller Battle As the smoke was now clearing and the moon rising, the British guns opened fire, and, soon realizing that there 'was no possibility of my annoying the enemy and a certainty of destroying my men', the commanding officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Robert C. Nicholas, wisely ordered them to 'right about face' and retire to the base of the hill. 15pm, having moved silently in dead ground up the hill in a two-rank line with their bayonets at the 'charge', the 21st US Infantry appeared, unimpeded - indeed undetected - by British skirmishers, and halted at an old rail fence barely 30m from the guns.
