"Beckett feedback has been enormously superior, and infrequently chastened, through genetic scholarship, as this anthology... attests."--Andre Furlani, Modernism/Modernity
"This choice of essays... represents the main entire research of Beckett's dating to philosophy in print, how philosophical concerns, conundrums, and issues play out amid narrative intricacies. the amount is hence either an astonishingly complete review and a sequence of distinctive readings of the intersection among philosophical texts and Samuel Beckett's oeuvre, provided via a plurality of voices and bookended by means of an historic advent and a thematic conclusion."--S. E. Gontarski, Journal of Beckett Studies
"Helps us to think about not just how Beckett made use of philosophy yet how his personal suggestion may be understood philosophically."--Anthony Uhlmann, college of Western Sydney

In the remarks that follow I would like first to say something of my views of Vico’s presence in Finnegans Wake and then, as an appassionato of Vico as well as of Joyce, to attempt to draw out some aspects of Beckett’s essay that I think are well worth attention in the study of Vico’s connection to Joyce.
