image of Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

In this essay, I explore Beckett’s later fiction in terms of his figurative mind. First, I survey Beckett’s interest in anatomical tables in his later prose. Second, I reconsider the importance of Jung’s “Tavistock Lectures” in terms of the configuration of the mind, and compare his view of the dark centre of the unconscious with the central arena of Le Dépeupleur. Finally, I address the cylinder in Le Dépeupleur and the dark in Company in connection with the (im)possibility of a mental tabulation based on the art of geodesy.
