Stories & texts for nothing by Samuel Beckett( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 1,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together three of Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett's major short stories and thirteen shorter pieces of fiction that he calls "texts for nothing." Here, as in all his work, Beckett relentlessly strips away all but the essential to arrive at a core of truth. His prose reveals the same mastery that marks his work from Waiting for Godot and Endgame to Molloy and Malone Dies. In each of the three stories, old men displaced or expelled from the modest corners where they have been living bestir themselves in search of new corners. Told, "You can't stay here," they somehow, doggedly, inevitably, go on. Includes: "The Expelled" "The Calmative" "The End" Texts for Nothing (1-10)

The screens : a play in seventeen scenes by Jean Genet( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Genet was one of the world's greatest contemporary dramatists, and his last play, The Screens, is his crowning achievement. It strikes a powerful, closing chord to the formidable theatrical work that began with Deathwatch and continued, with even bolder variations, in The Maids, The Balcony, and The Blacks. Explicitly political, The Screens is set within the context of the Algerian War. The play's cast of over fifty characters moves through seventeen scenes, the world of the living breaching the world of the dead by means of shifting the screens'the only scenery'in a brilliant tour de force of spectacle and drama

Mercier and Camier by Samuel Beckett( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written over three months in 1946, Mercier and Camier was Beckett's first post-war work, and his first novel in French. He came to regard it as a practice piece, and set it aside to write his trilogy. Mercier et Camier was finally published in 1970, and in Beckett's English translation four years later. The eponymous heroes tramp around a city, then out of it, then back again. They are aimless, but there is something elusive that they should be doing. They arrange meetings, they drink, they argue, they discuss being shot of each other. They are preoccupied by the weather, by provisions, by a raincoat, by an umbrella, by a bicycle ..."--Publisher
