Beckett, Literature and the Ethics of Alterity

Beckett, Literature and the Ethics of Alterity
by Shane Weller

# Hardcover: 232 pages
# Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan (July 21, 2006)

If there is one trait common to almost all post-Holocaust theories of literature, it is arguably the notion that the literary event constitutes the affirmation of an alterity that resists all dialectical mastery and makes possible a post-metaphysical ethics. Beckett's oeuvre in particular has repeatedly been deployed as exemplary of just such an affirmation. In Beckett, Literature and the Ethics of Alterity, however, Weller argues through an analysis of the interrelated topics of translation, comedy, and gender that to read Beckett in this way is to miss the strangely 'anethical' nature of his work.
