ABOUT THE BECKET LETTER PROJECT

The Letters of Samuel Beckett is the first comprehensive edition of the letters of Irish-born writer Samuel Beckett (1906-1989), providing access to primary sources now scattered in archives and private collections worldwide. Through The Letters, students, scholars, critics and theater artists can trace the evolution of Beckett’s work with increased insight into his choices as a writer. Anthony Roche wrote in The Irish Review of Books: "These extraordinary letters will be of value not just to people interested in Beckett but to an even larger general audience."

Volume I: 1929-1940 (2009), Volume II: 1941-1956 (2011), Volume III: 1957-1965 (2014), and Volume IV: 1966-1989 (2016) , as well as the complete set, are available from Cambridge University Press.
