Samuel Beckett Website
A visually incoherent site (a consequence of downloading text direct from other sites) which brings together an impressive amount of information from numerous sources documenting the life and work of the Irish playwright and novelist. The site lists online texts, literature festivals and events, reviews, articles, and other websites and blogs devoted to Beckett. There are audio and film and television sections which indicate when a recording or broadcast is available commercially on CD or DVD (a warning that these are not always up to date) The site also records material available in other countries and in other languages. A small amount of titles are streamed.
