Rabatâe, a former president of the Samuel Beckett Society and aleading scholar of modernism, explores the whole range of Beckett`s plays, novels, and essays.

At the same time, he stresses Beckett`s inimitable sense of metaphysical comedy. Foregrounding Beckett`s decision to write in French, Rabatâe inscribes him in a continental context marked by a `writing degree zero` while showing the prescience and ethical import of Beckett`s tendency to subvert the `human` through the theme of the animal.
