Simon Critchley's "Know Happiness... On Beckett"
The next meeting for the Quilting Points Reading Group will be in the Douglas Jefferson Room of the School of English at 5.15 on February 28th. The text under discussion will be Simon Critchley's chapter on Samuel Beckett, "Know Happiness... On Beckett" from Very Little…Almost Nothing (Routledge, 2004). Dr Richard Brown (Leeds) will give a short introduction to Critchley's work and its relation to Samuel Beckett's writing, which will be followed by a general discussion of the essay as both theory and commentary. Some wine will be served and people are welcome to bring their own.
