SAMUEL BECKETT AND BOB DYLAN
"It is rare to be alive during the lifetime of major artists that you admire – in my case Beckett and Dylan.
Samuel Beckett's translations of his own works are never literal, word-by-word transcriptions. Instead they are free, highly-inventive adaptations of the original text or, perhaps more accurately, repatriations from one language to the other, from one culture to the other.
Similarly, Bob Dylan has made multiple changes to his songs so that those performed at concerts are often quite different from those on the original album recording.
In this book I survey the lives and works of these consummate artists"
