Emancipatory Aesthetics in Beckett's Theatre of Affect
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences.
2019 (English)In: Samuel Beckett Today/Aujourd'hui, ISSN 0927-3131, E-ISSN 1875-7405, Vol. 31, no 2, p. 295-306Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article uses Beckett's directorial comments on the screened version of What Where (1982), as a point of departure for teasing out the poetic logic of Beckett's attention to the formal aspects of the stage image. By having formal aspects take precedence over linguistic expression, Beckett refuses closure on the level of language and makes more authentic acts of judgment possible. Such 'emancipatory aesthetics' promotes intellectual freedom, a liberating aspect of Beckett's work sometimes neglected.
