Abstract

ROJAS, Sergio. Samuel Beckett: Writing (at) the End. Aisthesis [online]. 2018, n.64, pp.73-90. ISSN 0718-7181.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7764/aisth.64.4.

The end is a motif that crosses practically all of Samuel Beckett's work. In this article I propose, with particular attention to his novel How It Is, that the exhaustion of meaning in Beckett's writing does not properly constitute a thesis or a position about the “human condition” (does not serve as an illustration of existentialist philosophical perspectives), but is an exploration on the limits of language, paradoxically inexhaustible.

Keywords : Beckett; How It Is; writing; end; silence.
