Samuel Beckett's Late Minimalist Style, Professor Ann Banfield, University of California, Berkeley

Date: 7 November 2012 Time: 5.00-6.00 pm

Venue: County Main Seminar Room 4

This paper examines the syntax of Samuel Beckett's late minimalist style, contrasting it with the style of Joyce's Finnegan's Wake. It argues that the difference from Beckett's earlier to later style crucially involves theories of the lexicon and the distinction between the open-class and closed-class categories.
