Beckett’s Dantes

Daniela Caselli

Manchester University Press

This chapter provides a reading of Mercier et Camier/Mercier and Camier that focuses on how Dante sometimes appears in the French and not in the English self-translated text, and vice versa. It observes how the issues of authority, visibility and invisibility can help assess the role Dante played in Mercier and Camier in relation to both Mercier et Camier and other texts by Beckett. Finally, it considers P. J. Murphy's point that the true ‘pseudocouple’ is the author linked with his two creations, and not Mercier and Camier.

Keywords:   Mercier and Camier, self-translated text, authority, visibility, invisibility, Beckett's texts, P. J. Murphy, pseudocouple
