These essays by major international critics and philosophers examine Beckett’s reputation “after Beckett,” the years of scholarship and performance since his death in 1989. Focusing on the afterimage that lingers as a memory—a persistent, evocative, hovering but not fully present impression that haunted Beckett and his work—the contributors simultaneously critique how Beckett’s work haunts history. The volume includes a previously unpublished letter by Beckett, both in the original French and English translation, that anticipates the aesthetic discussions published as Three Dialogues with Georges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.

Book Description:

“A stimulating series of engagements with a diverse range of Beckett’s writing. It uses the notion of ‘afterimages’ to explore how Beckett’s work is not only haunted by residues of images, memories, readings, and ideas, but also in turn haunts other disciplines and provides for fascinating dialogues with them.”—Mary Bryden, Cardiff University, Wales, and president of the Samuel Beckett Society   “An intriguing new methodology for thinking about many of Beckett’s most oblique and difficult texts, particularly those from the later years of his career.”—William Hutchings, University of Alabama, Birmingham     These essays by major international critics and philosophers examine Beckett’s reputation “after Beckett,” the years of scholarship and performance since his death in 1989.
