Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0802134904, Paperback)Although Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) is best-known for his novels, such as the Molloy series, and his still frequently-performed plays like Waiting for Godot and Endgame, he is rarely thought of as a writer of short fiction and prose. Yet he wrote short works devotedly throughout his life; many critics count various Beckett short stories as masterpieces of the form, central to an appreciation of the writer's oeuvre. The Complete Short Prose, 1929-1989, as the title suggests, collects all of the Nobel Prize-winner's shorter works, such as "First Love," and "The Lost Ones."
(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 14 Feb 2013 13:54:02 -0500)
An anthology of short stories by a poet and dramatist who considered his prose fiction "the important writing." The collection represents the seeds of creation for his later works in which he looked at the tragicomic plight of man. The titles range from Assumption, published in a magazine when Beckett was 23, to Stirrings Still, written when he was 82.
