about

The Nobel Prize winning author Samuel Beckett is a literary treasure, and this work represents the only comprehensive reference to the concepts, characters, and biographical details mentioned by, or related to, Beckett. Painstakingly and lovingly compiled by acclaimed Beckett scholars C.J. Ackerley and S.E. Gontarski, it is alphabetical, cross-referenced, and laid out in a very user-friendly format. The Grove Companion to Samuel Beckett provides an organized trove of information for students and scholars alike, and is a must for any serious reader of Beckett. As most Beckettians know, 'reading [him] for the first time is an experience like no other in modern literature.' (Paul Auster)
C. J. Ackerley is head of the Department of English at the University of Otago in New Zealand. He has published annotated guides to Malcolm Cowley’s Under the Volcano and Samuel Beckett’s first published novel, Murphy.
