David Pattie (University College Chester, UK)
Over the years, a critical consensus has emerged about the placing of Beckett’s stage images; the brightly lit figures in the later drama are poised against a darkness that is imagined to be infinite. In the title of a recent book on Beckett’s theatre, these are ‘empty figures on an empty stage’; their isolation can be read as a quasi-metaphysical representation of the human figure lost and alone, or as an inherently deconstructed positioning of the human figure in a very nearly decontextualised space.
