A Theatre of Affect (Paperback)

Charlotta Palmstierna Einarsso


Combining phenomenological analysis and affect theory, this book takes stock of the various ways in which the body in Samuel Becketts drama participates in the affective ecology of performance. If the post-human innovation up until the present has worked to decentre the human, by rendering notions of thinking, experience, and affect impersonal and by developing new models of expression and communication, then this innovation seems to be already underway in Becketts theatre of affect where the assault against language is made possible through the thematising of the body as a mode of encountering presence. The corporeal turn in Becketts drama therefore has far-reaching implications for the production of meaning in his work.
