David Hatch (Brigham Young University)
Nearly every study of Samuel Beckett refers to his "Three Dialogues: Tal Coat - Masson - Bram van Velde," written with Georges Duthuit, the French critic and editor of Transition 49. My presentation reexamines this work in the context of post-war Parisian aesthetic debate. In Duthuit’s journal, for example, André du Bouchet 's "Three Exhibitions: Masson - Tal Coat - Miró” precedes "Three Dialogues: Tal Coat - Masson - Bram van Velde," by Samuel Beckett and Georges Duthuit, which is followed by "Some Sayings of Bram van Velde." Clearly, this arrangement is designed to encourage comparison, and a close reading reveals that Beckett and Duthuit’s text is, in many ways, a pointed response to du Bouchet’s and Van Velde's statements.
