The Question of Boundaries



This chapter discusses the prosthetic body in Beckett in relation to the question of the body’s boundaries. From the outset my definition of the prosthetic body stresses the significance of the interaction between the inside and the outside, which necessarily highlights boundaries. The previous chapter touched upon the boundaries of the body and the flows across them. In this chapter, however, I will examine more directly and closely how the boundaries of the body are problematised in Beckett’s work. In the process, the prosthetic body as the locus for the negotiation of boundaries will be foregrounded.
