Samuel Beckett’s Bodies of Water

 

In Samuel Beckett’s canon, water is a recurring image. In his radio play, Embers, the protagonist Henry tells us that he is sitting by the ocean, in his stage play Endgame Nagg and Nell remember nearly drowning in Lake Como, and in his tour de force stage and later television play, Not I Mouth refers to the narrative gushing from her mouth as a “steady stream.” Water in these and other works by the Nobel Prize winning author is both a location and a metaphor; it is aligned with happy memories and danger, with transition and stasis, with the beginning and  the end.

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Schools of thought labeled Speculative Realism (SR) and Object Oriented Ontology (OOO) have recently honed as well as critiqued postmodernism’s conceptualizations of the relationship between (human) consciousness and (nonhuman) objects.  SR and OOO have, in turn, been criticized for their often radically speculative and academic methodology divorced from concrete ethical and political concerns that include issues of class, gender, race, and sexuality.
