Abstract:

"Alba" and "Dortmunder" were "written above an abscess and not out of a cavity, a statement and not a description of heat in the spirit to compensate for pus in the spirit." (Beckett to MacGreevy, 18 October 1932) This paper explores the nature of this abscess and the way in which Beckett constructs his statements by linking obscured allusions to create a coherent and convincing hinterland for the poems.
