Abstract

This paper examines two of Samuel Beckett's late narrative works, "Ill Seen Ill Said" and "Worstward Ho", setting them in the context of the author's developing metafictional and self-reflexive aesthetics. The minimalist features of the works are analyzed as a mode of narrative and aesthetic self-referentiality. The dowloadable paper is written in Spanish. ("'Unnullable Least': La metaficción y el vacío en el Beckett de los 80").

Keywords: Literature, Narrative, Metafiction, Samuel Beckett, Minimalism, Reflexivity
