image of Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

In Beckett's works, the body always seems to be drawn back to the earth which sustains it, whereas speech tends to become indistinguishable from a character's breath of life. It is for this reason that one recognizes in the work the presence of two fundamental elements: Earth and Air. Genesis (2:7) affirms that the "Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." This homology is analyzed for its theatricality and hermeneutic consequences, sometimes marked by subversion.
