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