    marshwiggle23first to reviewThis book is worth readingThe three most written about writers in the twentieth century in the West were TSEliot James Joyce and Samuel Beckett As in the case of Conan Doyle and Wodehouse or Tolkien and Rowling now they became industries and not just authors While much has been written on Beckett's plays and novels not much has been written on his poetry Even in 2013 every university library and public library will be happy to own a copy of this critical work on Beckett's English Poetry such is his power and importance as a Nobel Prize winning writer It is a significant study making him enter the canon of modern poetry along with Yeats Pound and Eliot This is not to mention the interest this book will generate in Beckettians Joyceans Irishmen and of course scholars academicians literateurs and poetry lovers all over the world in general
