Manuscript Genetics, Joyce's Know-How, Beckett's Nohow

Dirk Van Hulle


By taking the principles of manuscript genetics and using them to engage in a comparative study of James Joyce and Samuel Beckett, this book re-imagines the links between them. The readings reveal that the most striking similarities between these two lie not in their nationality or style but in their shared fascination with the process of revision. The book's application of genetic theory—the study of a work from manuscript to final form in its various iterations—marks a new phase in this dynamic field of inquiry.

Keywords: manuscript genetics, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, similarities, revision, genetic theory
