Death is indisputably central to Beckett's writing and reception.  This collection of research considers a number of Beckett's poems, novels, plays and short stories through considerations of mortality and death. 
Chapters explore the theme of deathliness in relation to Beckett's work as a whole, through three main approaches.  The first of these situates Beckett's thinking about death in his own writing and reading processes, particularly with respect to manuscript drafts and letters. The second on the death of the subject in Beckett links dominant 'poststructural' readings of Beckett's writing to the textual challenge exemplified by the The Unnamable.
A final approach explores psychology and death, with emphasis on deathly states like catatonia and Cotard's Syndrome that recur in Beckett's work.  Beckett and Death offers a range of cutting-edge approaches to the trope of mortality, and a unique insight into the relationship of this theme to all aspects of Beckett's literature.
