Synopsis: Samuel Beckett's celebrated early study of Marcel proust, whose theories of time were to play a large part in his own work, was written in 1931. It is a brilliant work of critical insight that also tells us much about its author's own thinking and preoccupations. In its own right it is a masterpiece of literary and philosophical creative writing. This edition was published in 1999 - ten years after the writer's death. The volume also contains the equally celebrated dialogues with the art critic Georges Duthuit - written to record their different points of view after the discussions took place. Beckett always let Duthuit win, but his very unusual and often opposite point of view on the nature and purpose of art is all the more forceful and memorable on that account.
About the Author: Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) was born in Dublin of a comfortable middle class protestant family. After school in Northern Ireland, he went to Trinity College in Dublin where he distinguished himself in French and Italian and was recognised as a brilliant scholar. Under an exchange agreement, Beckett taught at the Ecole Normale Superieure. He moved to Paris in 1928 to write, staying in France during the Second World War - he was a courier in the Resistance. He was one of the major novelists and playwrights of the last century, as well as a poet and a perceptive writer on the work of others. "Waiting For Godot" brought him world fame but his celebrated fiction includes the "Molloy" trilogy, "Murphy" and "Watt" among others. He has written many plays for stage, T.V., radio and film and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969.
