e includes a previously unpublished letter by Beckett, both in the original French and English translation, that anticipates the aesthetic discussions published as Three Dialogues with Georges Duthuit. Along with his celebrated study, Proust, it details Beckett’s early artistic credo. The book also features an essay by noted philosopher Luce Irigaray that will have wide appeal beyond Beckettians and postmodernists. These essays will be important to a broad range of scholars interested in philosophical and psychological aspects as well as practical applications of Beckett’s work, particularly in the theater.
