This book analyzes diachronically Samuel Beckett’s dramatic works considering the relation between tragic and tragedy.
Philosophical, literary and biblical-theological categories help understanding that in Beckett’s horizon the traditional tragedy is passed but the tragic is more than ever alive.
This tragic is expressed through laugh – that Beckett defines dianoethic – and gives birth to a new dramatic and anti-dramatic technique.
The book also rebuilds the stage success of the works described and includes a wide and valuable photographic documentation.
