schema:description""An expressive dialogue between Gilles Deleuze's philosophical writings on cinema and Samuel Beckett's innovative film and television work, the book explores the relationship between the birth of the event - itself a simultaneous invention and erasure - and Beckett's attempts to create an unrepresentable space within the interstices of language as a (W)hole. While focusing specifically on Film (1964), the television adaptations of dramatic works such as Play, Not I and What Where, as well as the made-for-TV productions of Eh Joe, ..but the clouds ..., Ghost Trio, Quad I & II and Nacht und Träume, this book is more than an exploration of Beckett's TV work through a specific Deleuzean filter. More importantly, it is also an opportunity to re-examine Deleuze's Cinema 1 and 2 - specifically the affect- and time-images - through Beckett's specific audio-visual "peephole." Given Beckett's obvious compatibility with Kafka and minor literature, this study contextualizes his television work in relation to Deleuze's writings on cinema as a whole, and by extension, the ontology and semiotics of film and televisual language."--Publisher's website."@en
