Discussion about the ‘musicality’ of Samuel Beckett’s writing now constitutes a well-recognized severe trope in Beckett experiences, one who is still knowledgeable via the still-emerging facts of Beckett’s engagement with song all through his own and literary existence, and through the continued curiosity of musicians in Beckett’s paintings. In Beckett’s drama and prose writings, the connection with song performs out in implicit and particular methods. a number of of his works contain canonical tune by way of composers corresponding to Schubert and Beethoven. different works combine tune as a compositional point, in discussion or pressure with textual content and photo, whereas others undertake rhythm, repetition and pause to the level that the texts themselves seem to be ‘scored’. yet what, accurately, does it suggest to assert piece of prose or writing for theatre, radio or display, is ‘musical’? The essays integrated during this ebook discover a few ways that Beckett’s writings interact with and are engaged through musicality, discussing primary and no more time-honored works by means of Beckett intimately. starting from the scholarly to the non-public of their respective modes of reaction, and educated via methods from functionality and musicology, literary experiences, philosophy, musical composition and artistic perform, those essays supply a severe exam of the methods we would understand musicality as a definitive and infrequently missed characteristic all through Beckett’s work.
