Awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969, Samuel Beckett's influence on 20th century fiction and drama is immeasurable. Published in conjunction with the RTÉ (Radio Telefís Éireann) Thomas Davis Lecture Series to mark the centenary of Beckett's birth, Samuel Beckett - 100 Years consists of thirteen essays by many of the foremost academics studying Beckett today. Literary luminaries such as John Banville and Anthony Cronin line up alongside philosophers Dermot Moran and Richard Kearney to delve into the psyche of the man responsible for classics such as Murphy, Krapp's Last Tape, and Waiting for Godot, while actors Barry McGovern and Rosemary Pountney describe what makes his works so theatrical. The book is a challenging and serious look at Beckett's work and its impact on literature today.
