Beckett and nothing

Trying to understand Beckett

Daniela Caselli, Terry Eagleton, Jonathan Bignell, Peter Boxall, and Enoch Brater

Published by Manchester University Press

  • The hardback edition sold out in a year
  • Contains a starry list of eminent contributors, including a foreword from Terry Eagleton
  • Covers all the genres in which Beckett wrote (from prose to drama and from film to television) and it discusses music, visual arts, and drawings as present in the oeuvre
  • Will be a suitable book to adopt on final year undergraduate courses while also being an essential presence in University libraries and bookshops
  • The volume explores the paradoxes at the core of Beckett's poetics through the notion of 'nothing', analysed in its many incarnations in Beckett's prose works, plays, TV plays and adaptations
