Samuel Beckett: Out of the Archive

International Conference, University of York, June 23-26, 2011

"My texts are in a terrible mess."

In the wake of his 2006 centenary, Samuel Beckett's prestige has continued to grow. His work has a continuing resonance in the public sphere, as the recent high-profile publication of the first volume of his letters shows, and the field of Beckett studies remains central to developments in the understanding of modernism. Beckett's oeuvre is also celebrated for its transcendence of specific cultural and historical contexts, a situation that appears to pull against his increasing historical importance.
