Completion of editing of Volume III and IV of a four volume critical edition and preparation of a one volume edition for a general audience. (36 months)

This selected edition is the first comprehensive collection and contextual presentation of the letters of Irish-born writer and world-playwright Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) whose work is held in the highest esteem by a large, diverse, and international audience. Pivotal for scholarship in the humanities, The Letters of Samuel Beckett published by Cambridge University Press will enrich all readers with fresh perspective on twentieth-century culture. This NEH proposal seeks support to complete the editing of Volume III and IV, and to prepare a one volume edition.
