Imperative of Narration


Add your own review!

Overview

This is the first book to deal with the self-reflexeve nature of narration of Beckett and Bernhard. Samuel Beckett's and Thomas Bernhard's works are representative of a persisting perplexity with regard to language. The texts of both authors are marked by their narrators obsessive need to write, which is inextricably interwined with their profound suspicion of language. The perpetuation of the narration is explained as an imperative, a simultaneously conscious and unconscious command which forces the artist to submit to the creatice process. The author places this inexplicable force of the imperative within the context of Arthur Schopenhauer's aesthetic theory and Jacques Lacan's concept of desire. The attempt to define and interpret the two authors' prose and drama is displacd by this sense of the infinity of desire (Lanan) and by the iternal becoming of the will (Schopenhauer), which reveal themselves to lie at the heart of Beckett's and Berhard's creativity.
