Connecting Contexts: The Letters of Samuel Beckett

Curated by Lois More Overbeck, Editor

This exhibit will present materials from each of the four volumes of The Letters of Samuel Beckett. Curated by Lois More Overbeck, the one of the editors, this exhibit offers more than 30 years of scholarship and insight into the life and work of Samuel Beckett.

The Letters of Samuel Beckett is the first comprehensive edition of the letters of Irish-born Nobel laureate Samuel Beckett (1906–1989). Perhaps best known for En attendant Godot (Waiting for Godot), Beckett wrote fiction, poetry, and criticism as well as drama for stage, radio, television, and film. Writing in both English and French, he translated much of his work from one language into the other and assisted or directed productions of his plays.
