Grounds of Representation: An Essay on a Dilemma in the Fiction of Jorge Luis Borges and Samuel Beckett
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of Philosophy, Aesthetics. Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of Philosophy, Aesthetics.

Abstract [en]

In their fiction, Samuel Beckett and Jorge Luis Borges find themselves caught on the horns of a dilemma: they accept neither a literature that imitates not a literature that refuses to imitate. This book proposes the following understanding of their project, against the context of contemporary trends in science and art: that only when the writer begins to extricate himself from realism and anti-realism can he or she keep suspense to a minimum. In creating a literature aware of itself and its own limits, both writers create a self-destructive fiction that places the reader in the same relation to the text as the writer to the act of writing.
