Palgrave Advances in Samuel Beckett Studies explores the evolution of critical approaches to Beckett's writing. It will appeal to graduate students (and advance undergraduates) as well as scholars, for it offers both an overview of Beckett studies and investigates current debates within the interdisciplinary critical arena. Each of the contributors is an eminent Beckett specialist who has published widely in the field. The volume contains an introduction, twelve essays and a guide for further reading.
