Irish writer, dramatist, and poet Samuel Beckett is widelyrecognized as one of the most important literary figures of ourtime. In 2006 the numerous worldwide events celebrating thecentenary of Beckett's birth were a striking testament to theimportance of his works. These events served also as confirmationof the Nobel Prize-winning author's continued relevance in the 21stcentury. In fact, an intense proliferation of new internationalscholarship has led to a complete reassessment of Beckett’sthoughts and works.

Taking full advantage of this recent growth in Beckett studies,and its accompanying wealth of newly released archival sources,A Companion to Samuel Beckett provides a comprehensivecritical reappraisal of the literary works of Samuel Beckett.Informed by the latest theoretical debates, this important newvolume features a collection of original essays by a distinguishedteam of leading Beckett scholars, including two highly regardedbiographers. Authoritative and insightful, the Companion is avaluable addition to contemporary Beckett scholarship.
