Adorno's "Trying to Understand Endgame"
The next meeting for the Quilting Points Reading Group will be in the Douglas Jefferson Room of the School of English at 5.15 on Tuesday the 25th of October. The text under discussion will be Theodor Adorno's essay on Samuel Beckett's Endgame, "Trying to Understand Endgame" [Versuch, das Endspiel zu verstehen]. Michael Springer (York) will give a short introduction to Adorno's work and its relation to Samuel Beckett's writing, which will be followed by a general discussion of the essay as both theory and commentary. Some wine will be served and people are welcome to bring their own.
For a pdf copy of the essay (in English and/or German) or for general comments or expressions of interest (in introducing a thinker or presenting at our seminar series), please contact us:
