Summary
"Samuel Beckett and the Prosthetic Body is a study of the representation of the body in Samuel Beckett's work (both novels and plays), specifically focusing on the 'prosthetic' aspects of the organs and senses. Referring to the indeterminate border between the body and material objects, inside and outside, self and other, the concept of prosthesis is gaining weight in contemporary critical discourses. While making use of the theoretical potential of this concept, Tajiri attempts to highlight palpably physical aspects of the Beckettian body."--BOOK JACKET
