The pieces are arranged chronologically, beginning in the 1950s, and trace more than four decades of Blau's encounters with Beckett, from early productions of his plays through the remarkable series of theoretical writings that, in the vicissitudes of perception, seem to merge with Beckett's voice. In addition to these now-classic essays on Beckett's prose and drama, the collection includes a poignant introduction with elements of a memoir and two recent pieces that reflect on the paradoxically enlivening project of Beckett's notorious despair, the giving birth "astride of a grave" or, in the insatiable writing itself, "the accusative of inexistence.""--BOOK JACKET." ;
