Abstract

My article discusses Paul Auster’s debt to Samuel Beckett. I discuss an early play of Auster’s, called ‘Laurel and Hardy Go to Heaven,’ and his novel The Music of Chance in relation to Beckett’s Waiting for Godot. I will be proposing that Beckett’s influence on Auster was quite pronounced in his early work, but as he has grown in confidence as a writer this influence is less apparent, and he has created a voice and a style very much his own, although Beckett can still be glimpsed, albeit fleetingly, beneath the surface.
