This collection of essays examines how popular cultural forms and media are woven into the fabric of Beckett's works and how Beckett continues to have far-reaching impact on popular culture today in a host of different forms, in film and on television, from comics to meme culture, tourism to marketing.--Sam Slote, Trinity College Dublin When Samuel Beckett's work first appeared, it was routinely described, by Adorno among others, as a clear example of European high culture. However, this judgement ignored an aspect of Beckett's work and its reception that is, arguably, not yet fully understood; the intimate relation between his work and popular culture. Beckett used popular cultural forms; but popular culture has also found a place both for the work and for the man.
