Product Description

Review

"'Reading Beckett for the first time is an experience like no other in modern literature.' Paul Auster 'Ackerley and Gontarski have amassed an amazing amount of information about Samuel Beckett and his works. The Faber Companion will prove useful to everyone - from the neophyte who seeks other work by Beckett to the seasoned Beckett scholar who is not necessarily an expert on the writer's use of astrology or zoology. In short, from A to Z, all readers of Beckett will be enriched.' Ruby Cohn"

Format: Paperback
This is a very good resource to accompany study of any or all of Beckett's works. References are alphabetically listed and contain a stunning amount of detail and information. It is simple to use - you literally just look up the topic you require information on as you would in an encyclopedia - and very thorough (and usually are a good starting point for directing your other reading). For example, in looking up the the entry on Fritz Mauthner, I was given a brief biography of Mauthner, a synopsis of his ideas, examples of references to them in Beckett's works, some examples of how Beckett may have been influence by Mauthner, as well as directions that pointed me towards the German Letter of 1932 (with its own detailed entry) and Beckett's study on Proust. Very helpful indeed.

I cannot stress enough how useful this has been to me in the final year of my BA degree, and I fully intend on using it should the subject come up in my post graduate study next year. The editors should be proud of a truly impressive achievement.
