Beckett letters given to university

Trinity College in Dublin yesterday received more than 680 letters written by playwright Samuel Beckett (left) to a woman friend.

They were written over a 32-year period to radio drama producer Barbara Bray, who had a close personal and professional relationship with Beckett, and now lives in Paris.

Ms Bray was at the ceremony in the university, where Beckett studied modern languages in the 1920s.
