Recommended Reading List #29

Librarian Rhys Tranter is a fan of modernist author and playwright Samuel Beckett, so he's obviously excited to note Reading University's scheduled international symposium hosted by the Beckett International Foundation. It will take place on September 25-26th under the title "Humanity and Animality in Beckett".

A new set of publications of Beckett's work (including readers editions, critical editions, collected works of poetry and fiction) have all been enabled by research in the Knowlson archive of letters and papers owned by the towering literary figure, now held at Reading University.

Oranjepan asks:
What are we waiting for?


  1. I'm waiting for people in politics to get with the program

  2. See these are the things that happen in Reading that I never know about. I only see the bad stuff -- people setting cars on fire in my street, etc.
