Oh, Krapp  John Hurt on Samuel Beckett's loner hero | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
Krapp's Last Tape is a kind of essay in aloneness so playing it 10 times a week was an intense experienceYears before I did Krapp's Last Tape I'd seen Patrick Magee and Jack MacGowran do it both of the bishops of the church of Beckett.

Recently Published: Irish Gothics - Genres, Forms, Modes, and Traditions, 1760-1890

Recently Published: Irish Gothics - Genres, Forms, Modes, and Traditions, 1760-1890 | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
Variously described as a 'canon', 'tradition', 'genre', 'form', 'mode', and 'register', Irish gothic literature suffers from a fundamental terminological confusion, and the debate over exactly which term best applies has been both heated and, ultimately, inconclusive in the past thirty years. The dominant theorization of Irish gothic literature to emerge in late-twentieth and early-twenty-first century scholarship has been driven by psychoanalytic readings of the literary gothic in Ireland as the fictional representation of the repressed fears and anxieties of the minority Anglo-Irish population. Such definitions of Irish gothic literature, however, both overlook the gothic literary output of authors who were not members of the Anglo-Irish Ascendancy and suggest that gothic writing in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was confined solely to fiction. This collection of essays challenges these assumptions, exploring the rich and varied gothic literary production of a large, multicultural selection of authors working across the genres in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Ireland.
