(p.1) Introduction
Beckett’s Dantes

Daniela Caselli

Manchester University Press

This introductory chapter considers the inclusion of Dante in Beckett studies, where the former stands out and stands for Samuel Beckett's isolation and greatness. It addresses the main argument of the study, that Dante's presence in Beckett is part of a critique of value and authority, the latter becoming a critical issue when studying the relationships between these two authors. This chapter also identifies the approaches that are focused on quantifying ‘how much Dante’ can be found in Beckett, or on determining how accurate or revealing Beckett's representations of Dante may be.

Keywords:   Beckett studies, Dante, Samuel Beckett, authority, representations of Dante, critique of value, relationships
