Beyond minimalism : Beckett's late style in the theater

Author: Enoch Brater
Publisher: New York : Oxford University Press, 1987.
Edition/Format:   eBook : EnglishView all editions and formats
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
Beckett's later dramatic works defy generic classification as pure theatre, poetry, or prose. Instead, Brater argues, they forge a new aesthetic for themselves. Analysing Beckett's use of disjointed body imagery; mask; abstract monologue; and the experimentation in film and video in the 1980s, Brater demonstrates Beckett's truly avant-garde departure from our concepts of the 'theatrical'.
