about

Samuel Beckett and the Prosthetic Body is a study of the representation of the body in Samuel Beckett's work (both novels and plays), specifically focused on the 'prosthetic' aspect of the organs and senses. While making use of the theoretical potential of the concept of 'prosthesis', this book aims to resituate Beckett in the broad cultural context of modernism in which the impact of new media and technologies was variously registered.
YOSHIKI TAJIRI is Associate Professor of English at the University of Tokyo, Japan. He has written extensively on Samuel Beckett and Twentieth-century English Literature. He has also translated Beckett's Dream of Fair to Middling Women into Japanese and edited a Japanese book on J.M. Coetzee.
