Analysis of Krapp's Last Tape by Samuel Beckett: Light and Dark

- In Krapp’s Last Tape by Samuel Beckett, light and its opposite, dark, are used to represent Krapp’s rejection of intellectual, physical, and emotional interactions for his transient comfort of the dark.

Krapp views the dark as a source of freedom and a place of work while light is synonymous of love and his previous chances of happiness. The contrast between light and dark demonstrates the eternal consequence of Krapp’s failed aspirations and his decision to live in a world of solitude rather than creating a balance between a life of privacy and of emotional...   [tags: Solitary Life, Addiction]
