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 world-wide. Through The Letters, students, scholars, critics and theatre artists can trace the evolution of Beckett’s work with increased insight into his choices as a writer. The Letters of Samuel Beckett will enrich our perspective on the arts and life of the twentieth century.
Volume I (2009), covering the years 1929 through 1940, and Volume II covering 1941 through 1956 (2011) are available from Cambridge University Press.
