Abstract:

"Images of Beckett sets John Haynes' unique repertoire of photographs of Beckett's dramatic opus alongside three newly written essays by Beckett's biographer and friend, James Knowlson. Haynes captures images of Beckett's work in progress and performance and includes hitherto unseen portraits of Beckett himself. Haynes was privileged to be present at the Royal Court Theatre in London when Beckett directed his own plays. Among the 75 photographs are compositions that include the leading interpreters of the plays.

Knowlson's first essay combines a verbal portrait of Beckett with a personal memoir of the writer; the second considers the influence of paintings that Beckett loved or admired on his theatrical imagery; the third offers a detailed, often first-hand, account of Beckett's work as a director of his own plays. The essays are the result of personal conversations with Beckett and attendance at rehearsals. They provide a unique glimpse into the world of one of the theatre's most influential and enduring playwrights."--Jacket.
