The Meaning of Aging

image of Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

Oh les beaux jours de Beckett éclaire certains thèmes centraux dans la question de la vieillesse, et elle les réfléchit d’ une manière particulièrement précise et dense: l’ importance d’ avoir un compagnon de vieillesse; une conscience accrue de la finitude humaine et en même temps de la possibilité d’ être délivré par la mort des épreuves de la vie; un sens plus aigu du plaisir que recèle à notre insu le train-train de la vie quotidienne; une plus grande sensibilité aux (et un plus grand regret des) occasions perdues de la vie; l’ importance de poursuivre ses activités en dépit des changements provoqués par l’ âge.
