Beckett in Black and Red. The Translations for Nancy Cunard's Negro (1934). Edited by Alan Warren Friedman.
University Press of Kentucky,
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. Nancy Cunard was a poet, essayist, editor, journalist, war correspondent, memoirist, avant-garde publisher, African art collector and activist for racial equality. In this volume Alan Friedman reevaluates Samuel Beckett's English translations of nineteen French essays and poems originally published in Nancy Cunard's "Negro," a seminal anthology of racial, historic, artistic, political and economic culture published originally in 1934. In the process, Beckett appears as a man deeply engaged in one of the major public issues of his time.
