Dedicated to Samuel Beckett in honour of his eightieth birthday, the thirteen essays here focus on Beckett's later fiction and drama - his fiction since How It Is (1961) and his drama since Endgame (1957). Published here for the first time, the essays are characterised by originality of material and freshness of viewpoint. They provide help for the reader who is drawn to the recent work of one of the twentieth century's most important authors, but who feels he needs some help in coming to terms with it. As testimony to Beckett's international reputation, the contributors are drawn from various parts of the English-speaking world, and include many of the leading Beckett scholars of the day.
