Letters of Samuel Beckett v 1
Wydawnictwo: Cambridge University Press
letters written by Samuel Beckett between 1929 and 1940 provide a vivid and personal
view of Western Europe in the 1930s, and mark the gradual emergence of Beckett's
unique voice and sensibility. The Cambridge University Press edition of The Letters
of Samuel Beckett offers for the first time a comprehensive range of letters of
one of the greatest literary figures of the twentieth century. Selected for their
bearing on his work from over 15,000 extant letters, the letters published in this
four-volume edition encompass sixty years of Beckett's writing life (1929-1989),
and include letters to friends, painters and musicians, as well as to students,
publishers, translators, and colleagues in the world of literature and theater.
For anyone interested in twentieth-century literature and theater this edition is
essential reading, offering not only a record of Beckett's achievements but a powerful
literary experience in itself.
