SHORT FORMS IN BECKETT. FRAGMENTS

Samuel Beckett’s prose and drama can pose many difficulties for a reader unfamiliar with their idiosyncrasies. Fragmentariness, or various fragmentary structures, narrative and dramatic alike, can be considered as one tenet of Beckett’s oeuvre, especially of his later works.  However, what do we mean when we describe his works in this fashion? What is, for example, the fragmentary narrative of The Unnamable or The Lost Ones?  Can we even speak of narrative in the first place, or do we, perhaps, need a redefinition of narrative?

English: The Journal of the English Association invites contributions to a special issue on The Classroom of Literature

 

. . . . we moved together out of the clutch of the Fates, inhabitors of a world without doom; with a scratching, licking and chewing of pens, a whisper and passing of jokes, a titter of tickling, a grumble of labour, a vague stare at the wall in a dream. . . . (Laurie Lee, Cider with Rosie)

Literature, being a creative universal form of expression, addresses spiritual, emotional and social concerns of humanity. It is known that there are reciprocal relations between literature and religion, still the question of how these two disciplines interact with each other invites fresh thought. Looking at the past of English Literature, it is abundantly clear that critics even before Mathew Arnold have referred back to form and content of religious scriptures.

Perfection, Pollution, and the Truth of Performance

Rape of Lucrece, l. 899

 

For its 33rd issue (Spring 2018), the online peer-reviewed journal Etudes Epistémè (www.episteme.revues.org) seeks articles examining Shakespeare’s treatment of the notions of perfection (or “purity”) and pollution (or “impurity”), understood not only along traditional moral and religious lines, but also, more “profanely”, in aesthetic and hermeneutic terms.
