Summary
"Samuel Beckett's private writings and public work show his deep interest in the workings of the human mind. Samuel Beckett and Experimental Psychology is an innovative study of the author's engagement with key concepts in early experimental psychology and rapidly developing scientific ideas about perception, attention and mental imagery. Through innovative new readings of Beckett's later dramatic and prose works, the book reveals the links between his aesthetic method and the methodologies of experimental psychology through the 20th century. Covering important later works including Happy Days, Not I, and Footfalls, Samuel Beckett and Experimental Psychology sheds important new light on Beckett's depictions of the workings of the embodied mind."--
