The Daily Drama of the Body: Disability and Samuel Beckett’s Endgame

JAYJIT SARKAR

Abstract


In Beckettesque reality, bodies are not seen in their corporeality. Rather, they become tools for various philosophical and metaphysical speculations. This rupture between reality and corporeality is what makes Beckett an interesting case-study for disability studies. Disabled characters and their impaired bodies in the play Endgame are also subjected to such hermeneutical speculations. My effort will be to blast open the continuum of such hermeneutics and see those bodies in their phenomenological materiality— going back to the internal structure of pain, suffering and disability

Keywords
