The Broken Window
Beckett's Dramatic PerspectiveBook - 1987x
The author defines and analyzes the new type of theatrical perspective invented by Samuel Beckett. She begins with an overview of the changes of the definition of century knowledge, then discusses the concepts of time, space, and movement which underlie Beckett's notion and use of perspective in the theatre. The Broken Window shows how Beckett translates a number of twentieth-century esthetic and philosophical concerns into specific dramatic techniques and traces their evolution through close textual analyses of six plays.
