“if you could finish it…”: Beckett’s Revisions and Autotranslations

This digital exhibit features scans from a number of Samuel Beckett’s original notebooks, manuscripts and typescripts in both English and French. These pieces offer fascinating insight into the evolution of Beckett’s works across multiple drafts and two languages.

The physical exhibit "If you could finish it..." accompanied Connecting Contexts: The Modern Literature Collection and the Letters of Samuel Beckett in Olin Library in 2019, also now a digital exhibit.
