Abstract
Prof. Raymond Federman, who was a close friend and mentor of Beckett, in his famous lecture “The Imagery Museum of Samuel Beckett” (2006) delivered following his friend’s death, has said about understanding Beckett that one should not even try, instead one should use one’s sense and imagination to appreciate the imagery of “Sam’s text painting”, for adds Federman; Beckett who could have been himself a great painter, became that painter in his work. He painted beautiful tableaux for us with words rather than with paint.
