"A Beckett Canon by theater scholar Ruby Cohn is a guide to the complete works of Samuel Beckett. Born and educated in Ireland, Beckett lived most of his life in Paris. His works were written in either English or French, and he usually translated from one language to the other. In her book, Cohn offers commentary on Beckett's entire corpus, focusing on his work in its originary language."--Jacket
Anglo-American interplay in recent drama by Ruby Cohn( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cohn brings a critical eye of unusual versatility and experience to the reading of these paired playwrights. In Pinter and Mamet, for example, she notes the shared sense of linguistic play. In the plays of Bond and Shepard, on the other hand, she explores the plight of the artist in society; in those of Simon and Ayckbourn, the comic exposition of middle-class mores. Without engaging in cultural reductivism or misleading stereotypes, Cohn demonstrates how such themes lend themselves to differing interpretations in Great Britain and in the United States. A certain transatlantic double focus thus illuminates both the composition and the interpretation of dramatic works in an increasingly globally minded age
