Samenvatting

This volume of the bdmp analyses the genesis of one of Beckett's most important works, the novel L'Innommable / The Unnamable, written in French in 1949-50 and translated into English by Beckett in 1956-8. Through an examination of the surviving manuscripts and typescripts, as well as the French and English pre-book-publication extracts, this study locates the novel within Beckett's developing aesthetic, especially his interest in Fritz Mauthner's 'critique of language' (Sprachkritik). It aims to show that the compositional processes of both the original French version and the English translation of L'Innommable reflect, in their different ways, Beckett's attempt to achieve what he famously describes as a 'literature of the unword'.
