Beckett to win British election
Ok, not quite. But look, Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg has written a pithy little piece for the Guardian about his hero, our own Samuel Beckett. “It’s that willingness to question the things the rest of us take for granted that I admire most about Beckett; the courage to ask questions that are dangerous because, if the traditions and meanings we hold so dear turn out to be false, what do we do then?” Would it sway your vote? And if Clegg aspires to the Beckettian, what in the world might Cameron and Brown be aspiring to, literarily speaking?
