processors. Fortunately, we know of at least one indisputable genius of the century of signals, who contrived work not only for the fading empire of signs (of the novel, and of the theatre, in their respective death throes), but composed directly for the newer media of signals, and undertook to conduct his aesthetic missions into enemy territory with immense perspicacity. His name was Samuel Beckett. Table 9.1 Technical permutation schema of Beckett's works for television

Beckett (Boston: Twayne Publishers, 1980), p. 117. Samuel Beckett, The Lost Ones (New York: Grove Weidenfeld, 1972); Le dépeupleur (Paris: Les Éditions de Minuit, 1970). Subsequent references are given in the text. 2 While the back cover of the Grove Weidenfeld American edition of The Lost Ones praises such ‘wealth of allusions’, John Pilling comments on the text’s rhetorical flatness.

The works of Samuel Beckett have been both influenced by dance and transformed by it (see Jones, 2013 ; Clavier, 2018 ). They have also long inspired choreographers. In an article entitled ‘Projections chorégraphiques beckettiennes, pour un corpus en danse’, published in 2015, Stefano Genetti counted no less than fifty choreographic productions, while pointing out that his list was not exhaustive. Faced with such a diverse corpus, Genetti prefers the term ‘projection’ to ‘adaptation’ or ‘transposition’, as theorised by Gérard Genette ( 1982

From the Novellas to the Three Novels

construction of the author Samuel Beckett and make each of the two versions part of a process of self-commentary. Dante is a significant discourse also in the prose texts from the Nouvelles/Novellas (alternatively called Stories ) to the Textes pour rien/Texts for Nothing . 1 In these texts, especially from Le calmant/The Calmative (the last written novella) onward, the levels of control and authority are less apparent than in Mercier et/and Camier , since the distinctions between narrator and characters are gradually collapsed by the

The effect of place on Mouth on Fire’s stagings of All That Fall

was against this setting that All That Fall was performed on 23 March 2019 as part of the annual event ‘Beckett in Foxrock’, begun in 2016 by members of the parish with the intention of celebrating the author in his boyhood church. At the original event, a plaque was unveiled at the pew where the Beckett family had habitually sat, bearing the inscription ‘Samuel Beckett (1906–1989) / Nobel Laureate for Literature / Worshipped Here’. Following that ceremony, and on each occasion since, one of Beckett's works is performed, usually preceded by an introductory talk

Dream of Fair to Middling Women (Tallahaseee, FL: Journal of Beckett Studies Books, 2004); see also J. D. O’Hara, Samuel Beckett’s Hidden Drives: Structural Uses of Depth Psychology (Gainesville: University Press of Florida, 1997). 3 The case of Dream of Fair to Middling Woman , which was published after Beckett’s death, is one example of a residuum which suddenly became part of the canon. 4 For a detailed description of the fragmentary nature of the manuscript see Pilling, ‘From a (W)horoscope to Murphy ’ and

Intratextuality in More Pricks Than Kicks
Daniela Caselli

texts of Samuel Beckett are the texts of Samuel Beckett’, Samuel Beckett the author is himself the product of this constant process of incorporation. 5 More Pricks Than Kicks can be read as deferring its own origin while contributing to an idea of consistency in the oeuvre : it is a text whose origin is always somewhere else, in unlocatable spaces which nevertheless belong to other Beckett works. The repetition of Dante in its many forms (quotations and characters from the Comedy , the recurring name of Dante, references to the Convivio
