sex sells

Sex and Aesthetics in Samuel Beckett’s Works places sex and sexuality firmly at the heart of Beckett’s ouevre.

Sex informs Beckett’s search for a means of aesthetic creation not infected by aspects of natural procreation, and the suffering and death which it entails, in the hope that the tyranny of Schopenhauer’s will-to-live might be overcome. Paul Stewart ably and amply shows that sex, so long overlooked, is an integral, and troubling, facet of Beckett’s art.
