Anthony Uhlmann offers a reading of Beckett in the light of recent French philosophy, particularly the work of Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari, Levinas, and Derrida. Beckett and Poststructuralism is a work of literary criticism that is also an intellectual history of the relationship between Beckett's texts and their French philosophical and cultural context. Uhlmann explores the overlap between Beckett's aesthetic and philosophy, emphasizing how postwar French philosophy was powerfully affected by Beckett's work. This book addresses a wide range of issues in contemporary philosophy and literary theory.
