We now consider the letters and journals of figures such as Pepys, Montagu, Boswell, and Burney to be an integral component of eighteenth-century literary culture. But did these writers consider manuscript to be "literature"? This panel will examine the relationship between personal manuscript and print publication. To what degree are the letters, correspondences, and journals of a writer continuous with his or her writing for a diffuse literary marketplace? Can we evaluate the form and style of letters and journals with the same approaches that we employ for genres typically considered "public"—drama, poetry, fiction?

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.
