Samuel Beckett's long-standing friend, James Knowlson, recreates Beckett's youth in Ireland, his studies at Trinity College, Dublin in the early 1920s and from there to the Continent, where he plunged into the multicultural literary society of late-1920s Paris. The biography throws new light on Beckett's stormy relationship with his mother, the psychotherapy he received after the death of his father and his crucial relationship with James Joyce. There is also material on Beckett's six-month visit to Germany as the Nazi's tightened their grip.;The book includes unpublished material on Beckett's personal life after he chose to live in France, including his own account of his work for a Resistance cell during the war, his escape from the Gestapo and his retreat into hiding.;Obsessively private, Beckett was wholly committed to the work which eventually brought his public fame, beginning with the controversial success of "Waiting for Godot" in 1953, and culminating in the award of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969.;James Knowlson is the general editor of "The Theatrical Notebooks of Samuel Beckett".

Samuel Beckett's work harbors an inevitable complicity with traditional modes and values. His idealist and even nihilist inclinations, for example, are closely related to the abstracting and systematizing tendencies that have predominated in Western thinking. His drama and fiction, in reproducing these tendencies, also help to reinforce and legitimate them. Beckett's work can thus be said to encourage an attitude of stoic resignation or life-denying withdrawal. Sylvie Debevec Henning's study reveals an important countertendency. In examining Beckett's art and literary criticism, his novel Murphy, plays Krapp's Last Tape and Endgame, his only film venture, and the late story "The Lost Ones," she shows that through a variety of double-voiced techniques -- irony, parody, and satire -- Beckett also brings a powerful critical light to bear upon our culture's repeated attempts to reduce or eliminate the more problematic aspects of existence and even mocks our desire to do so. His disquieting and occasionally uproarious interweaving of contradictory perspectives -- somber and carnivalized, established and contestory -- suggests that suffering and anguish are fundamental to life, while it affirms their relation to laughter and creative vigor within a richer, if less settled, cultural context. Drawing upon the work of Nietzsche, Heidegger, Foucault, Derrida, and particularly Bakhtin, Henning argues that Beckett's profound critique of Western intellectual tradition does not necessarily entail the loss of all positive values and beliefs. On the contrary, his use of carnivalesque and dialogized modes signals a revitalizing capacity that has not been fully appreciated.

ZUM BUCH Samuel Becketts lebenslange, oft nur implizite Bezugnahme auf Hölderlin wird in diesem Buch neu und von Grund aus erschlossen. Der Hölderlin Becketts hat ein ganz anderes Profil als das, welches im 20. Jahrhundert insbesondere von George und Heidegger aufgerichtet worden ist. Überraschenderweise ist es nicht nur ein moderner Hölderlin. Er bleibt zudem seinen bedeutenden philosophischen Anfängen näher, von denen wir auch erst seit drei Jahrzehnten eine genauere Kenntnis haben. Doch wie lassen sich die Leitworte ‹das Sein› und ‹das Nichts› überhaupt verstehen? Dieter Henrich verbindet zwei ganz verschiedene Erkundungsgänge miteinander, in einer Werkanalyse und im Umriss einer eigenen philosophischen Konzeption. Sie enthält eine Kritik sowohl an den Folgerungen der sprachanalytischen Philosophie wie an Hegels, Heideggers und Sartres Thesen über "Sein und Nichts".

In contrast to the many critics who consider W. B. Yeats a dominant influence on Beckett's drama, this study demonstrates that the two are almost diametrically opposed in their theater and that the real bridge to Beckett's art is to be found in the narrative and pictorial creations of the younger Yeats brother, Jack.

Samuel Becketts Interesse für die deutsche Literatur und Kultur ist unbestritten. Dieser international besetzte Band ergründet Becketts Auseinandersetzung mit deutschem Kulturgut in seinen Werken, in Manuskriptfassungen und in den noch unveröffentlichten Tagebüchern, die Beckett während seines Aufenthalts in den 1930er Jahren in Deutschland verfasste. Darüber hinaus kommen intertextuelle Schnittpunkte zwischen Beckett und klassischen wie zeitgenössischen Autoren zur Sprache. Die Beiträge werfen so einen einmaligen Blick auf die deutschen Einflüsse in Becketts Werk und untersuchen seine Wirkung auf jüngere deutschsprachige Autoren wie W.G. Sebald, Peter Handke und Michael Lentz.
