Beckett Before Beckett

Author(s): Brigitte Le Juez

Cultural Studies

A classic study of Samuel Beckett and his impressive body of work, this analysis is accessibly written and brings a fresh appreciation to the famed Irish writer. Portrayed with an unparalleled intimacy through the author's depth of familiarity with Beckett--they attended the same school and university and he was the first to devote a PhD to the study of the writer--this discussion dissects the many paradoxes that reside at the heart of his works: Ireland versus the larger world, intellect versus emotion, and the role of the artist versus that of the philosopher. An irreverent look into Beckett's portrayal of women in his fiction, plays, and poetry is also included.
