Not to be confused with the poem and collection of poems of the same title, Beckett's controversial short story OEcho's BonesO was not published. Now, almost eight decades later, it finally finds its way into print. This little-known text is introduced by the preeminent Beckett scholar, Dr. Nixon.
Samuel Beckett (1906-1989)one of the leading literary and dramatic figures of the twentieth century, was born in Foxrock, Ireland and attended Trinity University in Dublin. In 1969, Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature and commended for having “transformed the destitution of man into his exaltation.”
Dr. Mark Nixon is Lecturer in English at the University of Reading, UK, where he is also the Director of the Beckett International Foundation.
