Beckett Reading Group

All readings will be kept short, as this reading group is meant to inspire not increase the work that everyone is doing. We will be concentrating on his radio and television plays for our first meetings. We hope that considering the implications of these works as texts will lead to stimulating discussion. We hope to foster a dialogue about how these texts are studied as ‘texts’, rather than or alongside the medium in which they were incepted. Group members are welcome to bring critical pieces into discussion, but there is no pressure to do so. In fact, coming with visceral reactions that form critical inquiry as discussions progress is encouraged. Email Kristin Jones at and David Delaney with any questions.

The dates and first few readings are as follows:

Week Two: 6 Nov. All That Fall

Week Three: 20 Nov. …but the clouds…

Week Four: 4 Dec. Nacht und Träume

We will reconvene in Semester 2.
