5.0 out of 5 stars If you can only have one book on Marx, May 29, 2008
then this is really the volume to get. Besides it's Norton: headnotes, footnotes, delicious paper, quality binding, good selections, a good look at Marx as far I can see.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could be better, April 4, 2008
A much needed attempt to explore Beckett's debt to the Romantics. The writers know Beckett, but at the times it seems that they do not know the Romantics as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review, February 16, 2008
So as to sort of add to the discussion, I quote Samuel Beckett's own words about de Sade. SBB here is on point as always. I have to agree with him.

"I have read 1st and 3rd vols. of French edition. The obscenity of surface is indescribable. Nothing could be less pornographical. It fills me with a kind of metaphysical ecstasy. The composition is extraordinary, as rigorous as Dante's. If the dispassionate statement of 600 'passions' is Puritan and a complete absence of satire juvenalesque, then it is, as you say, puritanical and juvenalesque. You would loathe it whether or no... one of the capital works of the 18th century."

Qtd. from p. 269 of Damned to Fame by James Knowlson, the "official" biography of SBB as it were, which is also highly recommended.
