Abstract: This thesis brings together Badiou, Beckett and Merleau-Ponty through the notion of the fragment. By reading Beckett?s works in light of Merleau-Ponty?s ?The Intertwining --- The Chiasm? and Badiou?s writings on poetry, the notion of the fragment achieves temporality through the structure of the chiasm. The fragment can thus be understood as a temporal marker in Beckett?s late works that engages method, and more importantly, ethics. This thesis proposes the fragment as a mode of inter-textuality across Beckett?s late oeuvre and between the three writers that reclaims the body at the hinge of the word and the image.
