The aim of this study is to suggest an interpretation of memory and
forgetting in a selection of Samuel Beckett’s plays. The main focus of
interest is the protagonists‘ memory, whose interpretation is based on a
psychological approach: Beckett makes creative use of experimental
psychology in that he uses his protagonists‘ memory in numerous variations
which all stress distinct aspects of this theme. The psychological
approach of this study is complemented with the findings of gerontology
which take account of the characteristics of the memory of the elderly.
