Beckett, Yeats, and the occult

 

Thanks to Canadian Rep Pam Robinson for pointing us to a very cool piece on a Globe and Mail blog: Samuel Beckett, Yeats, and the occult: A digression. Blogger Linda Leith points out that in Beckett’s disassociation with Ireland, he distanced himself from other Irish writers and their interest in the occult and mysticism.

A great source on this, Leith writes, is our recently published Letters of Samuel Beckett.
