Shane Weller on Beckett’s Endgame

Shane Weller, Professor of Comparative Literature and Head of the School of European Culture and Languages, has co-authored a new book entitled The Making of Samuel Beckett’s ‘Fin de partie’/’Endgame‘ (University Press Antwerp and Bloomsbury, 2018).

Originally written in French and first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in 1957, Samuel Beckett’s Endgame is widely regarded as one of his most important works. The new publication is a comprehensive reference guide to the history of Beckett’s text.  It includes a complete descriptive catalogue of available relevant manuscripts, including French and English texts, alternative drafts and notebook pages, as well as a critical reconstruction of the history of the text, charting its genesis through the process of composition to its full publication history.
