Review:

Praise for "Echo's Bones" "It's pungent early Beckett, written while he was still under the sway of his mentor, James Joyce, but with a soundscape all its own: rude, surreal, death-haunted, sex-addled, dry as bone. . . . The story's pleasures are real, however, and reside in Beckett's full tilt, Devil-ready language. His paragraphs unfurl like parades, notations on life's sick pageant. . . . It's a punk's manifesto (Beckett was 27 when he wrote it) that gets at why Beckett continues to matter. . . . 'Echo's Bones' returns Beckett the troublemaker." --Dwight Garner, "New York Times" "A fascinating glimpse at an essential author at the start of his career. . . . ['Echo's Bones' is] exuberant, allusive, full of puns and wordplay." --David L. Ulin, "Los Angeles Times" "We see Beckett the late-modernist offering homage to his overweening exemplar James Joyce and at the same time twisting and thrashing as he tries to fly the Joycean nets and become his own man. In the end, it is as a part of the record of this struggle that "Echo's Bones" is of interest. . . . This volume is a masterpiece of scholarship." --John Banville, "New Statesman" "Glorious rhythms, ideas and wordplay . . . a rewarding and stimulating read for lovers of language and artistic inventiveness." --Malcolm Forbes, "Minneapolis Star Tribune" "'Echo's Bones', with its comic brio and ostentatious learning, is a significant link between a novice intellectual and the mature author of one of the 20th century's most celebrated plays." --"The Economist" "A fascinating immersion . . . sincere and gravely serious." --Arts Fuse "An extended prose poem, an exercise in beautiful language and striking image . . . this short text finds its rightful place among Beckett's novels, plays and poems." --"Kirkus Reviews" "Flights of Wildean repartee alternate with a Joycean ornateness of prose. . . . ['Echo's Bones'] contains in embryo Beckett's whole extraordinary world

Review:

Praise for Samuel Beckett"Beckett's voices, now mocking, now doubting, always carry their own special lyricism . . . And perhaps to understand Beckett's sullen craft and art fully, it is best to recall that age during which all human voices almost automatically speak poetry--childhood. . . . And like the child, too, in his awful ambivalence, [Beckett] is beyond--and before--judgement, so close does he tread on that nether world between creation and destruction." --"Time""In Beckett's fiction, every other word serves to snap the reader back to consciousness." --"The New York Times Book Review""It is in the vaudeville aspect that his exuberance gleams, and it is his exuberance--even the exuberance of his despair--that endears an author to us, far more even than his message." --Arthur Miller"Poet, novelist, short-story writer, playwright, translator, and critic, Samuel Beckett created one of the most brilliant and enduring bodies of work in twentieth-century literature. . . . It is an experience unequaled anywhere in the universe of words." --Paul Auster"He represents perfectly one supreme pole of the art of writing." --William Gass"[Beckett's work is a] continual search for a special type of perfection, a perfection manifest in his unfailing stylistic control and economy of language, his remorseless stripping away of superfluidities." --A. Alvarez

Descripción Grove Press, 2014. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "In September 1933, the publishers Chatto & Windus agreed to publish Beckett's collection of short stories, More Pricks than Kicks . Writing to Beckett, Chatto's editor Charles Prentice asked Beckett whether the title could be changed - it was calledDraffat the time - and whether he could possibly add a further story to extend the book's length. Beckett agreed, and proceeded to write the short story Echo's Bones.' By the tenth of November, the story was on Prentice's desk. However, on the 13th, Prentice wrote to Beckett saying that the story is a nightmare. Just too terribly persuasive. It gives me the jim-jams.' He politely turned down the story, believing it would lose the book a great many readers,' and proposed to publish More Pricks in the form originally submitted. Beckett's response to this rejection does not survive, but appears to have been understanding. The writing of Echo's Bones' had caused many problems for Beckett, not least as he had killed off the protagonist of the stories, Belacqua, in the story Draff,' which in the originally submitted, and now published version, is the last story of the collection. As a result of this episode, the story Echo's Bones,' which of course is not to be confused with the poem and 1935 collection of poems of the same title, remained unpublished. However, this little known text, and missing link in Beckett's development as a writer, will finally be published. Echo's Bones' survives in 2 typescripts. Beckett gave one copy to his friend A.J. Leventhal, and it is now in the Leventhal collection at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin. The other copy was given to Laurence Harvey and is now at Dartmouth College Library. The two typescripts are identical, but the marginal manuscript corrections differ, suggesting that they were corrected at different times. Due to its inaccessibility, the story has received scant critical attention. As such it belongs to what Stan Gontarski has termed Beckett's grey canon' a text that is as much present as it is absent from the oeuvre. This spectral existence, and the very nature of the text and the context in which it arose and disappeared, causes several interpretative problems. The first problem is to decide whether to discuss it in isolation, or as a part of More Pricks than Kicks , as it was originally intended. Just as the collection More Pricks was partially created from the textual detritus of the unpublished first novel Dream, Echo's Bones,' as we shall see, constitutes a nexus of intratextual and intertextual references, a textual network which implicates several of Beckett's other texts from the 1930s. Beckett, for example, used several ideas, characters and quotations from the unpublished text in Murphy. As such, its unpublished status marks an absence that diminishes, so to speak, the completeness of the other texts. As the text is unfamiliar to many readers, a short summary may be useful. The story refers to itself as a fagpiece' and a triptych,' and it is indeed a piece in three movements, whereby the three parts only barely make up a whole. It begins with Belacqua returned from the dead, sitting on a fence and smoking cigars. This first part tells the story of his resurrection, and his encounter with the prostitute Miss Zaborovna Privet. Having been ravished by her over garlic and Cuban rum, Belacqua is returned to his fence. The second part tells the story of Lord Gall of Wormwood, a large, even giant, estate owner who sweeps Belacqua up and takes him to his tree house. A fantastical and rather Swiftian dialogue ensues, during which it transpires that Gall is unable to father a son and secure the future of his estate. He fears the overtures made on Lady Moll Gall by the fertile Baron Extravas, who will inherit the estate should Gall die intestate. He thus requests that Belacqua help to make him a father. Belacqua, having weighed up the pros and cons of this request, Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0802120458
