Stuttering in Beckett as Liminal Expression within the Deleuzian Critical-Clinical Hypothesis

Deleuze Studies 4 (2):183-205 (2010)
This paper inquires into the nexus between the Deleuzian critical-clinical hypothesis and its literary instantiation in Beckett, with a focus on How It Is (1964) and Worstward Ho (1983b). I propose to read the interruptions in style symptomatically, and stuttering language in Beckett as liminal expression, thus tracing the flows and breaks of desire which Deleuze theorises in the sense of a symptomatological unconscious. The schizoid style as liminal expression exemplified in Beckett's work will be read as marking transit stages in the process of becoming which invites taking it as a proper language of the body without organs
