Beckett’s hardened minimalism, his sometimes staggered prose, and his biting humour are often and badly mimicked, but those who merely imitate will not be permitted to gather dust here. Instead, we offer a brief catalogue of certain talents and luminaries who more or less explicitly respond to Beckett in their writings, and to whom they owe a distinctive debt.
Suggestions for others who could be added to this company are always welcome. Note that books written specifically about Beckett and his work may be found on the Criticism Page and that music and films inspired by Beckett’s life and work are dealt with on the Music and Film Pages, respectively.
