The Essential Samuel Beckett / Enoch Brater

The Essential Samuel Beckett: An Illustrated Biography with 122 ilustrations

Samuel, Beckett, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969, is internationally recognized as one of the truly seminal playwrights of the twentieth century. He is undoubtedly a "difficult" writer, and one of the virtues of Enoch Brater's concise literary biography is to give the general reader easier access to Beckett's work, particularly his later and more elliptical theater and prose pieces.

Professor Brater follows Beckett's career from the early days in Ireland, to the efflorescence in France just after the Second World War, and beyond that to the unfolding of his success in the rest of the world as a result of the universal appeal of his cryptic, moving play Waiting for Godot. In his analysis of the way Beckett approached his work, Brater emphasizes the Irish rhythms in his writing, and examines, at all stages, the intriguing relationship between his fiction and his compositions for theater, film and television. Supported by a large selection of photographs, personal and public, here is a brilliant and informed study of Beckett's life and works.
Enoch Brater is Professor of English and Theater at the University of Michigan. He is widely known as a Beckett expert, and has published numerous critical studies on

modern and contemporary theater.
