BEATS & BODIES

Mikael Frederik Holst Nørlund

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

Covering the dimensions of Philosophy & Science and Text & Sign, this project is a Deleuzian reading of Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs. In that respect, it is a philosophical project, but it is also concerned with literature and creative thinking. Since both writers are very complex the aim with the project is not to present complete and final answers to a finite number of questions but rather to simply reflect upon a chosen amount of aspects of Burroughs and Deleuze’s work. More specifically, Deleuzian concepts such as the Event, Becoming and the Body without Organs are investigated and used for analyzing Naked Lunch.
