Product Overview

This work investigates the relationship between verbal cliche, memory and authority in Beckett''s prose and theatre, and argues that by consciously manipulating the language of cliches, Beckett challenges intellectual, social and religious authority and argues for the creative value of stupidity, a key concept in the thinking of philosophers such as Wittgenstein and Deleuze.
