These essays trace the development of Becketts art--from his first works through the claustrophobic world of The Unnameable to a final engagement with questions of Other and Love. Badiou rejects the stereotypical view of Beckett as the dark existentialist- rather, he claims that the lesson of Beckett is one of moderation, precision, and courage.
