International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v37 n2 p81-90 1993
Considers question of shifts in artistic and literary style from lifespan developmental perspective, focusing on change during midlife. Using Samuel Beckett as example, demonstrates relationship between his abrupt shift to playwriting and his entrance into midlife. Notes that theories of lifespan personality development suggest parallels between technical demands of dramatic art and psychological needs of midlife. (Author/NB)
