Philosophical Aesthetics and Samuel Beckett (Paperback)Andrea Oppo (author)
- We can order this
The major thesis of the book is that, at the heart of Beckett's philosophical project, this `aesthetics of truth' turns out to be nothing other than the real subject itself, within a contradictory and tragic relationship that ties the Self/Voice to the Object/Body. Yet a number of questions remain open. `What' or `who' lies behind this process? What is left of the endgame of art and subjectivity? Finally, what sustains and renders possible Beckett's paradoxical axiom of the `impossibility to express' alongside the `obligation to express'? By means of a thorough overview of the most recent criticism of Beckett, this book will try to answer these questions.
