Synopsis

This study is about the central place of the emotional world in Beckett's writing. Stating that Beckett is "primarily about love", John Keller makes a radical re-assessment of his influence and immense popularity. The book examines numerous Beckettian texts, arguing that they embody a struggle to remain in contact with a primal sense of internal goodness, one founded on early experience with the mother. Writing itself becomes an internal dialogue, in which the reader is engaged, between a "narrative-self" and a mother.
