Samuel Beckett in the Literary Marketplace

Stephen John Dilks

With a Foreword by S. E. Gontarski

Cloth $45.00s    |    978-0-8156-3254-2    |    2011

"It is long past due for a major revisionist counterpoint to the mainstream view of Beckett as a ‘floating head’ detached from such concerns as politics and finances." —P. J. Murphy, author of Beckett’s Dedalus: Dialogical Engagements with Joyce in Beckett’s Fiction

"Beckett’s vaunted disregard for fame and publicity did not prevent him from posing for photographs and monitoring the critical response to his texts, honing techniques learned from Joyce. Dilks’s contrarian and impertinent portrait painstakingly documents Beckett’s participation in his self-promotion."—Jean–Michel Rabaté University of Pennsylvania
