John Bolin presents new empirical evidence that demonstrates Samuel Beckett's preoccupation with the European literary tradition, challenging the notion that Beckett is best understood through philosophical or Anglo-Irish literary contexts. Engaging with literature in English, French, German, and Russian, Bolin's study traces new avenues for understanding Beckett's work – and by extension, the form of the modern novel.
