Beckett's later dramatic works defy generic classification as pure theatre, poetry, or prose. Instead, Brater argues, they forge a new aesthetic for themselves. Analysing Beckett's use of disjointed body imagery; mask; abstract monologue; and the experimentation in film and video in the 1980s, Brater demonstrates Beckett's truly avant-garde departure from our concepts of the `theatrical'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Brater cals his book Beyond Minimalism, but he might almost have called it Beyond Criticism, since it charts Beckett's movements beyond classificatory rubrics (the absurd, the nihilistic, the post-Joycean) into a region where all the rubrics come undone.'Michael Levinson, The New Republic `Brater's command of the primary and secondary Beckett material is everywhere present in this gracefully written, solidly researched, perceptive, often penetrating work, which not only succeeds in illuminating "the same but less" but moves the study of Beckett's plays beyond minimalism.'Choice
