Title
Spatio-geographical abstraction in Samuel Becketts **Not I/Pas moi**
Author
Abstract
Samuel Becketts drafts often depart from a concrete depiction, which is then gradually compacted. A peculiar example is the textual development of Becketts play Not I/Pas moi. The recognisable Irish setting of the early Kilcool manuscripts is cut back as the writing process evolves. The French translation removes all Irish references, yielding a spatially self-enclosed text. Besides a linguistic motivation, of the writing process rather than a repetition of the written product and that the spatio-geographical aspect of the text is used to implement changes in Becketts artistic conception.
