Sample text

7 We will see below that Beckett himself explains the opposition in question without any mention of music. The answer to the second question is ‘Yes, the terms “melody” and “symphony” play an important role in Beckett’s thoughts at that time’. With their help he integrates the discussion of old versus new novel into a context that he is constantly elaborating throughout the 1930s. Beyond Musical Metaphor Beckett did not invent the scheme of new versus old ways of narration; rather, he adopted it from André Gide and Marcel Proust.

Also new in this note is the term Nebeneinander. Beckett found it so important for his deliberations on aesthetic multiplicity that he elaborated it into a set of four terms. Nebeneinander stems from the monograph Laokoon oder über die Grenzen der Mahlerey und Poesie (1766) in which the poet and aesthetician Gotthold Ephraim Lessing discussed the story of Laocoon, his sons and the snakes. Lessing elaborated on the difference between a realization of this scene in literature and in sculpture. He distinguished these arts by their characteristic quality: literature is the art of the ‘after-one-another’, the Aufeinander folgend or Nacheinander, while the visual arts are the arts of the ‘next-to-one-another’, the Nebeneinander.
