Abstract
Of Beckett's six radio plays, only the date of Pochade radiophonique (Rough for Radio II) is uncertain. All critics, following Beckett, have suggested an early 1960s origin, but this paper proposes a late 1958 dating, which situates the radio play just before Comment c'est. On the basis of related archival material, such as the Barbara Bray letters, the papers of Robert Pinget and the BBC Written Archives, it repositions Pochade as part of a creative process involving the work of the Marquis de Sade and Jean Racine, the radio medium, historical events and Beckett's growing sense of writer's block throughout the 1950s.
