Subtitle:Beckett and Eco-Deconstruction
While Ecocriticism in general has received significant attention in Beckett Studies, there is a notable and unfortunate absence of attention to more recent work in this field. This is particularly noticeable in the lack of research directed toward the more philosophically inclined branches of Ecocriticism, namely Eco-Phenomenology, Eco-Hermeneutics, and Eco-Deconstruction. This paper is an attempt at addressing this problem and is intended as an introductory work to what is seen as the most promising of these, namely, Eco-Deconstruction. This paper explores the early development of Eco-Deconstruction and summarizes the work of several of its leading figures with the intention of demonstrating the relevance of this field for further research in Beckett Studies.
