Beckett and Modernism by Olga Beloborodova
English | EPUB | 2018 | 299 Pages | ISBN : 3319703730 | 0.8 MB

This book of collected essays approaches Beckett’s work through the context of modernism, while situating it in the literary tradition at large. It builds on current debates aiming to redefine ‘modernism’ in connection to concepts such as ‘late modernism’ or ‘postmodernism’. Instead of definitively re-categorizing Beckett under any of these labels, the essays use his diverse oeuvre – encompassing poetry, criticism, prose, theatre, radio and film – as a case study to investigate and reassess the concept of ‘modernism after postmodernism’ in all its complexity, covering a broad range of topics spanning Beckett’s entire career. In addition to more thematic essays about art, history, politics, psychology and philosophy, the collection places his work in relation to that of other modernists such as T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Wyndham Lewis, Gertrude Stein and Virginia Woolf, as well as to the literary canon in general. It represents an important contribution to both Beckett studies and modernism studies.

Nietzsche and Modernism: Nihilism and Suffering in Lawrence, Kafka and Beckett By Stewart Smith
English | EPUB | 2018 | 242 Pages | ISBN : 331975534X | 0.6 MB

Reconfiguring Nietzsche’s seminal impact on modernist literature and culture, this book presents a distinctive new reading of modernism by exploring his sustained philosophical engagement with nihilism and its inextricable tie to pain and sickness. Arguing that modernist texts dramatize the frailty of the ill, the impotent, and the traumatised modern subject denuded of the traditional means to justify or redeem one’s suffering, it uses the Nietzschean diagnoses of nihilism and what he calls 'ressentiment', the entwined feelings of powerlessness and vindictiveness, as heuristic tools to remap the fictional landscapes of Lawrence, Kafka, and Beckett. Lucid, authoritative and accessible, this book will appeal internationally to literature and philosophy scholars and undergraduates as well as to readers in medical and sociological fields.

Samuel Beckett's Critical Aesthetics

Samuel Beckett's Critical Aesthetics By Tim Lawrence
English | EPUB | 2018 | 250 Pages | ISBN : 3319753983 | 0.9 MB

This book considers how Samuel Beckett’s critical essays, dialogues and reflections drew together longstanding philosophical discourses about the nature of representation, and fostered crucial, yet overlooked, connections between these discourses and his fiction and poetry. It also pays attention to Beckett’s writing for little-magazines in France from the 1930s to the 1950s, before going on to consider how the style of Beckett’s late prose recalls and develops figures and themes in his critical writing. By providing a long-overdue assessment of Beckett’s work as a critic, this study shows how Beckett developed a new aesthetic in knowing dialogue with ideas including phenomenology, Kandinsky’s theories of abstraction, and avant-garde movements such as Surrealism. This book will be illuminating for students and researchers interested not just in Beckett, but in literary modernism, the avant-garde, European visual culture and philosophy.

Murphy - Samuel Beckett
French | 1947 | 201 Pages | ISBN: 2707302708 | EPUB | 224.85 KB

Après avoir étudié à Cork, Murphy, être tourmenté natif de Dublin, vit maintenant à Londres avec Célia, une Irlandaise dont le métier s'exerçait sur le trottoir. Célia a abandonné son activité et Murphy, quant à lui, n'exerce aucun métier, la notion même de travail étant radicalement contraire à sa nature. Oisif acharné, il n'aime rien tant que d'être harnaché dans un fauteuil à bascule et s'y bercer longuement. Cela apaise son corps et lui permet alors de vivre dans son esprit : abîme inintelligible et sphère pleine de clarté, de pénombre et de noir…
