About this book

This is the first sustained study of Samuel Beckett and testimony. It offers new readings of the problem of unspeakability in Beckett in relation to testimonial expression and the problems of knowledge which arise in recent theoretical conceptions of testimony and the archive.

Reviews

'An extremely well-written and cogently argued work on an area that has remained underexplored in Beckett studies.'

- Shane Weller, University of Kent, UK

'The book adds substantially to Beckett's status in considerations of testimony, providing an eloquent engagement that will prove an important reference-point for future scholarship.' - Peter Fifield, St. John's College, Oxford, Modern Language Review
