The questions the writer Samuel Beckett posed in his dramas, his prose and his poetry are the central questions asked by the most outstanding thinkers of modernity. Samuel Beckett, therefore, is the central figure in this book, but he is not alone. This study is not only a precise literary analysis, but it also traces transformations in terms of subjectivity and tries to conceptualize them. It universalizes the issues that emerge from the friction between the consciousness and the world, or, in other words, from the history of the struggle between the modern subject and that which negates: death, nothingness, the absence of meaning and the deception of living.
Jakub Momro is Assistant Professor at the Department of Polish Studies at the Jagiellonian University, Cracow. His research interest comprises modern and contemporary philosophy, the relationship between philosophy and other disciplines of art, as well as problems of subjectivity in contemporary culture.
