Product Description

Review

'Jorge Luis Borges has narrated the story of a man who buys Shakespeare's memory. Similarly, this exhaustive and compact book gives you access to Samuel Beckett's memory. Beckett's Library, which will become an indispensable reference for future Beckett studies, guides you step by step through Beckett's extensive and polyglot library, explaining its annotations, marginalia, and cross-references. And be reassured, this library also includes Shakespeare …' Jean-Michel Rabaté, University of Pennsylvania

'[Beckett's Library] is a magnificent piece of work. I am mightily impressed with it.' Edward Beckett, Executor of the Beckett Estate

'Serious and scholarly … The book is striking in its forensic treatment of the dialogue between a life in reading and a life in writing.' The Times Literary Supplement

'Hulle and Nixon's examination of the 700 books in Beckett's library at his death is diligent and methodical … The authors display great ingenuity at dating Beckett's markers, and they ably note references to the reading in Beckett's work.' Choice

Book Description

Samuel Beckett's Library critically examines the reading notes and marginalia contained in the books of Samuel Beckett's surviving library in Paris. Previously inaccessible to scholars, this is the first study to assess the importance of the marginalia, inscriptions and other manuscript notes in the 750 volumes of the library.
