DJUNA BECKETT SAMUEL BARNES at Senate House, 1st Floor, Room 102

May 9, 2011 from 6pm to 8pm
DJUNA BECKETT SAMUEL BARNES  Robert Kiely, Birkbeck: ‘Effing the ineffable: Barnes and Beckett’ There is always more surface to a shattered object than a whole. — Djuna Barnes Beckett and Barnes were known to each other. Both authors exhibit similar concerns in Watt (written during WW2) and Nightwood (1936): concerns about ‘effing the ineffable’, animality, lowness, and madness. Why are such similar techniques employed? These parallels are shared despite the almost polar-opposition between the…See More

Beckett and the Brain at Room 203, Birkbeck, Clore Management Centre

June 24, 2010 from 10:30am to 1pm
Beckett and the BrainLike much modernist writing, Beckett's work has often been read as anexperiment in consciousness. Explorations of the shape of the relationshipbetween subjectivity, language and the body remain a mainstay of much Beckettcriticism, while the more popular cultural sense of Beckett is still resolutelyconvinced of the work's probing of the human condition. More recently, archivalsupport for Beckett's knowledge and use of neurological, psychological andpsychoanalytic material,…See More
