Zone of Evaporation: Samuel Beckett's Disjunctions

Synopsis

"From the comic incongruities of Watt to the ontological gaps of The Unnameable, Zone of Evaporation demonstrates the crucial consistent role disjunction played in Beckett's novels. The book describes Beckett's divergence from Proustian metaphor and the revelation of the "real" towards an art which exploited the gaps and fissures within language and narrative and, ultimately, to an art which would go on to upset the post-structuralism of Jacques Derrida."
