On Beckett : essays and criticism by S. E Gontarski( Book )
22 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and held by 1,203 libraries worldwide
"On Beckett: Essays and Criticism is the first collection of writings about the Nobel Prize-winning author that covers the entire spectrum of his work, and also affords a rare glimpse of the private Beckett. More has been written about Samuel Beckett than about any other writer of this century - Countless books and articles are in print, and the progression continues geometrically. On Beckett brings together some of the most perceptive writings from the vast amount of scrutiny that has been lavished on the man; in addition to widely read essays, there are contributions from more obscure sources, viewpoints not frequently seen. Together they allow the reader to enter consciousness of our time, perhaps unmatched by that of any other recent creative imagination."--Back cover

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 192 libraries worldwide
"From the mid-1960s, Samuel Beckett himself directed all his major plays in Berlin, Paris or London. For most of these productions he meticulously prepared notebooks for his personal use."--BOOK JACKET. "The Theatrical Notebooks of Beckett that are reproduced in facsimile here offer a remarkable record of his own involvement with the staging of his texts. They present his solutions to practical problems of staging but also provide a unique insight into his way of envisaging his own plays."--BOOK JACKET. "With additional information taken from Beckett's own annotated and corrected copies, the editors of the Theatrical Notebooks have also been able to constitute a revised text for each of the major plays."--BOOK JACKET

Understanding Bergson, understanding modernism by S. E Gontarski( Book )
10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
Henri Bergson is frequently cited amongst the holy trinity of major influences on Modernism-literary and otherwise-alongside Sigmund Freud and William James. Gilles Deleuze's Bergsonism has re-popularized Bergson for the twenty-first century, so much so that, perhaps, our Bergson is Deleuze's Bergson. Despite renewed interest in Bergson, his influence remains understudied and consequently undervalued. While books examining the impact of Freud and James on Modernism abound, Bergson's impact, though widely acknowledged, has been closely examined much more rarely. Understanding Bergson, Understan
The Edinburgh companion to Samuel Beckett and the arts by S. E Gontarski( file )
10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 106 libraries worldwide
"The 35 new and original chapters in this Companion capture the continued vitality of Beckett studies in drama, music and the visual arts and establish rich and varied cultural contexts for Beckett's work world-wide. As well as considering topics such as Beckett and science, historiography, geocriticism and philosophy, the volume focuses on the post-centenary impetus within Beckett studies, emphasising a return to primary sources amid letters, drafts, and other documents. Major Beckett critics such as Steven Connor, David Lloyd, Andrew Gibson, John Pilling, Jean-Michel Rabaté, and Mark Nixon, as well as emerging researchers, present the latest critical thinking in 9 key areas: Art & Aesthetics; Fictions; European Context; Irish Context; Film, Radio & Television; Language/Writing; Philosophies; Theatre & Performance; Global Beckett. Edited by eminent Beckett scholar S. E. Gontarski, the Companion draws on the most vital, ground-breaking research to outline the nature of Beckett studies for the next generation"--Publisher
