The research tackles the element of space in three short plays of the Irish playwright Samuel Beckett (1906 -1989).

The study investigates the mythical context of these plays, highlighting the characters as archetypes, and showing how they fit in the spaces created by Beckett. In other words, the research illustrates the special arrangement of Beckett in these three plays, where characters are mythic figures of archetypal patterns. …
