This title features newly commissioned, invative essays on Samuel Beckett and the arts in the broadest sense. This Companion captures the continued vitality of Beckett studies in the visual arts, drama and music as well as considering topics such as Beckett and science, historiography, geocriticism and philosophy. The volume focuses particularly on the post-centenary impetus within Beckett studies, and emphasises a return to fundamental source study amid letters, drafts, and other documents, even as it is also informed by contemporary theory. Divided into nine sections covering Art; Aesthetics; The Body; Fiction; Film; Radio; Television; Global Beckett; Language / Writing; Philosophy; Reading and Theatre Performance; 36 expert contributors present the latest critical thinking in relation to Beckett Studies. It outlines the nature of Beckett studies for the next generation by focusing on the most vital, ground-breaking research in the field. It features the most comprehensive range of topics and approaches relating to Beckett and the 'arts' ever attempted. The contributors include major Beckett scholars such as Steven Conr, David Lloyd, Andrew Gibson, John Pilling, Chris Ackerley, Mark Nixon as well as emerging new Beckett scholars.
