Lois More Overbeck (Project Director: November 2007 to July 2013)
Letters of Samuel Beckett

Preparation and final editing of Volumes II and III of a four-volume edition of selected letters of Samuel Beckett. (36 months)

This is the first comprehensive collection and contextual presentation of the letters of Irish-born writer and world-playwright Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) whose work is held in the highest esteem by a large, diverse, and international audience. Pivotal for scholarship in the humanities, The Letters of Samuel Beckett will enrich all readers with fresh perspective on twentieth-century culture. This NEH proposal seeks support for the editing of Volume II and Volume III of the four volume edition being published by Cambridge University Press.
