"This is a quality study on a neglected aspect of a major artist s work, and it has reach beyond a group of narrow specialists in Beckett.Clearly written and cogently argued, Herren reaches far beyond the television plays as he develops their interconnectedness both to the radio plays themselves and to Beckett s one film." - S. E. Gontarski, Sarah Herndon Professor of English; Editor, Journal of Beckett Studies"An excellent contribution to the field and should benefit even those Beckett admirers who have little interest in his television plays. Herren provides a fascinating context for the progression of Beckett's work in television over several decades, deftly handles the daunting cultural and theoretical background required to understand Beckett's themes and allusions, and repeatedly employs clever turns of phrase, frequently relying on antithesis to sharpen his rhetoric." - Theatre Survey
