Other Becketts

Series Editor(s): S.E. Gontarski

This series focuses on underexplored approaches to Samuel Beckett’s work, examining those of Beckett’s interests that were more arcane than mainstream, quirky, or strange, even, and those of his works that are less thoroughly explored critically, such as the poetry, the criticism, the later prose and drama.

Volumes might, therefore, cover any of the following: unusual illnesses (for instance, Akathisia and Duck’s Disease in Murphy and unusual mental disorders in Watt); mathematical peculiarities (irrational numbers and factorial or Fibonachi sequences); linguistic failures (from Nominalism to Mautner); or citations or allusions to contrarian aesthetic philosophies and philosophers working in a more or less irrationalist tradition (such as those of Nietzsche or Bergson).

Key Features

  • Deploys new critical approaches
  • Addresses underexplored works in the Beckett canon
  • Presents new critiques of representation and philosophy
  • Attentive to critical thinking around affect and/in literature
