"These 13 concentrated outbursts, written at about the time of Waiting for Godot and the Trilogy (Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable) convey sadness, anger and frustration at the plight of man, aware of the tragedy of his short life on this planet and the potential that the human mind can envisage but not encompass. Beautiful and dramatic, they are quintessential Beckett Prose monologues". John Calder for the Beckett Shorts collection by Calder Publications (London), 1999.
The actor Conor Lovett, who performed The Beckett Trilogy in February 2003 at the Centre Culturel Irlandais, will read extracts of the Texts For Nothing. The reading will be followed by a 15-minute discussion.
