L'inexplicable chez Samuel Beckett : Dieux du chaos et monstres inconcevables

Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to show how clichés collapse and exists the inexplicable that Beckett notices as a condition of existence that coexists with other conditions, light and darkness ; and as chaos, composed by art destroying prejudices and clichés, and seen by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. This demonstration therefore proposes, on the one hand, to examine the fall of the gods of creation, sources of truth, wisdom and progress, and their denaturation into gods of chaos, and on the other hand, the elements abnormal writing, likely to be named monsters, because of their strangeness and ambiguity that prevent them from being defined. As for the gods of chaos, it will be the parody of the Christian God, Jesus Christ and Prometheus the inventor, and their degradation by which the creator will no longer be distinguished from his creature. As for the inconceivable monsters, the conditions of the monsters and the negative reactions towards them, which paradoxically imply the monstrualization, will be revealed by the theme of flowers, and the two mythical images, androgynous and Siamese, will reveal the impossibility of the identification or the significance, and the state of the interstage or confusion.
