Editor: Dan Gunn, Editor
Abstract: This third volume of The Letters of Samuel Beckett focuses on the years when Beckett is striving to find a balance between the demands put upon him by his growing international fame, and his need for the peace and silence from which new writing might emerge. This is the period in which Beckett launches into work for radio, film and, later, into television. It also marks his return to writing fiction, with his first major piece for a decade, Comment c'est (How It Is). Where hitherto he has been reticent about the writing process, now he devotes letter after letter to describing and explaining his work in progress. For the first time Beckett has a woman as his major correspondent: a relationship shown in his intense and abundant letters to Barbara Bray. The volume also provides critical introductions, chronologies, explanatory notes and profiles of Beckett's main correspondents. -The first authorized edition of Samuel Beckett's letters, selected from his entire corpus and gathered from archives and private collections worldwide -This volume contains his intense and abundant letters to Barbara Bray - the first time Beckett has a woman as his major correspondent Includes full explanatory notes, chronologies, profiles of Beckett's main correspondents and detailed references to the location of the letters

The Letters of Samuel Beckett, Volume IV: 1966-1989 (Book) [show prizes]
Title: The Letters of Samuel Beckett, Volume IV: 1966-1989
Author: Samuel Beckett
Editor: Lois More Overbeck, General Editor
Editor: George Craig, Editor
Editor: Martha Dow Fehsenfeld, Founding Editor
Editor: Dan Gunn, Editor
Abstract: This fourth and final volume, which completes the Cambridge edition of The Letters of Samuel Beckett, covers the final twenty-four years of what was, as Beckett saw it, a surprisingly long life. During these years he produced many of his finest and most concentrated works for theatre, plays that included Not I, Ohio Impromptu, and Catastrophe; for television he wrote Eh Joe and Ghost Trio; while in prose, he produced the late 'trilogy' that comprises Company, Ill Seen Ill Said, and Worstward Ho. In 1969, Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, and the letters from this period show him struggling to cope with the pressures created by his ever-growing international fame. The letters reveal how, later, he turned his mind to his legacy, as seen through his interactions with biographers and archivists. This volume also provides chronologies, explanatory notes, translations, and profiles of Beckett's chief correspondents.
