This volume aims to make easily accessible to students and scholars stimulating and innovative writing on the work of Samuel Beckett, representing the wide range of new approaches in contemporary critical theory: philosophical, political and psychoanalytic criticism, feminist and gender studies, semiotics, and reception theory.

Jennifer Birkett and Kate Ince bring together seminal writings on Beckett from the 1950s and 1960s with contemporary critical readings covering the whole range of Beckett's creative work.
