The representation and experience of embodiment is a central preoccupation of Samuel Beckett’s drama, one that he explored through diverse media. This monograph investigates the full range of Beckett’s dramatic canon for stage, radio, television and film, including early drama, mimes and unpublished fragments. It examines how Beckett’s drama composes and recomposes the body in each medium, and provokes ways of perceiving, conceiving and experiencing embodiment that address wider preoccupations with corporeality, technology and systems of power.
