The Haptic Aesthetic in Samuel Beckett's Drama, Hardback Book

The Haptic Aesthetic in Samuel Beckett's Drama Hardback

Part of the New Interpretations of Beckett in the Twenty-First Century series

Description

Samuel Beckett's work is deeply concerned with physical contact - remembered, half-remembered, or imagined.

Applying the philosophical writings of Jean-Luc Nancy and Maurice Merleau-Ponty that feature sensation, this study examines how Beckett's later work dramatizes moments of contact between self and self, self and world, and self and other.
