Preliminaries and Proust
in Samuel Beckett and the primacy of love

This chapter provides a basic outline of the psychoanalytical framework that serves as the background of the present study. It first examines a reading of Beckett's dissertation on Proust, and tries to lessen the inclusion of theoretical references and material in the main body. It considers the work as a record of purely internal experience, and suggests that the wide emotional appeal of Beckett's work is mostly due to its elaboration of an early experience that is characteristic of all internal development. This chapter also emphasizes certain imagery, symbols, and manifestations in the text.
