"Beckett feedback has been vastly more desirable, and occasionally chastened, through genetic scholarship, as this anthology... attests."--Andre Furlani, Modernism/Modernity
"This number of essays... represents the main complete research of Beckett's dating to philosophy in print, how philosophical matters, conundrums, and issues play out amid narrative intricacies. the amount is therefore either an astonishingly accomplished assessment and a chain of specified readings of the intersection among philosophical texts and Samuel Beckett's oeuvre, provided through a plurality of voices and bookended via an old advent and a thematic conclusion."--S. E. Gontarski, magazine of Beckett Studies
"Helps us to contemplate not just how Beckett made use of philosophy yet how his personal suggestion will be understood philosophically."--Anthony Uhlmann, collage of Western Sydney

Beckett’s essay is pp. 1– 22. Donald Phillip Verene 53 right, receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969 and having his own works become a subject of interpretation. Putting aside the obvious reason not to accept my invitation—of making the trip to Venice to speak in the stuffy, artificial atmosphere of an academic conference—my guess is that Beckett preferred the views of his essay simply to stand.

Imerti (Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1992), 90–91. 1). 16–17), a reference to Cusanus’s De docta ignorantia. ”12 But an understanding of Bruno or Cusanus has not even fared as well among the Joyceans as an understanding of Vico. 14 To devise interpretations of Joyce and especially Finnegans Wake without knowing the languages in which Joyce was fluent, those of the countries of continental Europe in which he lived and wrote, Italy, Switzerland, and France, is to go on a fool’s errand.
