Abstract/Summary

This is the first full-length study to apply current debates about animality to the work of one of the twentieth century's most influential writers. Animals are to be found throughout Samuel Beckett's prose, drama, and poetry. SAMUEL BECKETT AND ANIMALS brings together an international array of Beckett specialists to explore the significance of the animals that populate Beckett's work. In doing so, they also draw attention to the ethical continuum that binds human and nonhuman animality, thus providing new ways of thinking the animal within contemporary culture.
