The Plays of Samuel Beckett

In The Plays of Samuel Beckett Eugene Webb first summarizes the western philosophical tradition which has culminated in the void—the centuries of attempts to impose form and meaning on existence, the failure of which has left experience in fragments and man a stranger in an unintelligible universe. Succeeding chapters take up the plays work by work, interpreting each individually and tracing recurrent motifs, themes, and images to show the continuity in the underlying tendencies of Beckett's mind and art.

About the Author

Eugene Webb is professor emeritus in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington.

Reviews

"A thematic study of Beckett's dramatic output—plays, mimes, and film—done with clarity and sensitivity."

"Sensitive, well-ordered, and fascinating study of Beckett's plays. . . . Webb's ability to evaluate, to synthesize, and to probe Beckett's thought in the light of universal and eternal philosophies makes his volumes essential for libraries and for those haunted by Beckett's work."—Library Journal
