The Letters of Samuel Beckett, 1957-1965

Vol. 1 of Letters

“I’m a poor fist at letter writing”: so Beckett in August 1960 to Elliseva Sayers, one of his former students at Trinity College, Dublin, who had stayed in contact with the man she remembered as “handsome, distant, a reluctant teacher trying to find himself”. This latest volume in the superb Cambridge edition of Beckett’s letters discredits Beckett’s diffidence.
