Samuel Beckett Manuscript to be Exhibited for One Day

beckettThe University of Reading will display the hand-written manuscript for Murphy, Samuel Beckett’s first published novel, for one day this week at the Museum of English Rural Life.

The university, which owns the world’s largest collection of resources relating to Samuel Beckett, acquired the edition last year from a private collector. The manuscript is made up of six notebooks and is a very different version than the book published in 1938.

Here is more about the event: “The Murphy notebooks will be on public display on 11 June 2014, from 12.30 to 7pm at the Museum of English Rural Life, as part of Universities Week 2014. This will be as part of the Research showcase on the creative industries. The event will showcase how the University of Reading’s world-leading research feeds into the UK’s creative economy, with emphasis on theatre and film. Fore more details, please visit our Universities Week 2014 pages.” (Via The Guardian).
