Samuel Beckett as world literature /
edited by Thirthankar Chakraborty and Juan Luis Toribio Vazquez.
|Summary:||"The essays in this collection provide in-depth analyses of Samuel Beckett's major works in the context of his international presence and circulation, particularly the translation, adaptation, appropriation and cultural reciprocation of his oeuvre. A Nobel-prize winner who published and self-translated in both French and English across literary genres, Beckett is recognized on a global scale as a preeminent author and dramatist of the 20th century. Samuel Beckett as World Literature investigates themes such as cosmopolitanism and Beckett's engagement with the topics of home and exile, and its collection of international contributors shares perspectives on Beckett's reception in countries such as Japan, Serbia and Brazil, among others, fleshing out Beckett's relationship with postcolonial literatures and his place within the 'canon' of world literature"-- |
