Editorial Reviews

Stephen Spender
Beckett has learned well from his master, Joyce. He is an incomparable spell-binder....He writes with a rhetoric and music that -- as with some passages of Henry James and D. H. Lawrence -- make a poet green with envy....He is a serious writer with something serious to say about the human condition: and therefore one of the dozen or so writers those who are concerned with modern man in search of his soul should read. -- The New York Times
