(Self-)Translation and Auctoriality in the Correspondence of Samuel Beckett from 1929 to 1965

image of Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

Since 2009, a selection of Beckett’s letters has been made public. It is within this correspondence that one finds a new perspective on his (self)-translating practice, especially at a time when he was struggling to make a name for himself in the “literary game” (Lahire). Beckett was a bilingual writer aware of sociocritical stakes and able to take advantage of his bilingualism in the international literary field (Bourdieu).
