Birth. Parts lips and thrusts tongue between them. Tip of tongue. Feel soft touch of tongue on lips. Of lips on tongue. (Beckett 1984: 267–8). As Beckett said of James Joyce’s work, concerns with pattern, form, and detail make such acting “not about something . . [but] that thing itself” (quoted in Kalb 1989: 3).

But as I have described here (Chapter 15) and elsewhere (Zarrilli 1997), the actor must develop a psychophysical process, tactics, and mode of engaging images diﬀerent from most approaches to character acting in order to fulﬁl the rigorous demands of an embodied inhabitation of form and content.
