About this book

This new book situates Beckett in a philosophical and literary tradition that has argued for the creative value of stupidity, a key concept in the thinking of philosophers such as Wittgenstein. It investigates the relationship between verbal cliché, revealing the strategies he used to challenge intellectual and social authority in his works.
