The work of Samuel Beckett is some of the 20th century's most important writing. Of all the English-language modernists, Beckett's work represents the most sustained attack on the realist tradition. He, more than anyone else, opened up the possibility of drama and fiction that dispense with conventional plot, characterisation and the unities of place and time in order to focus on essential components of the human condition.

This research investigates Beckett in a range of contexts. Can Beckett's work be extended in an online context? What are the implications of putting his work online? How does it effect the work and how does it change the relationship of the reader to the writing?
