Though in the end this misgiving is overcome by a feeling of going "into the light...happy and free".

Puraty is a intresting concept. Most all artist's in all filds are sercing for it. But what is it? Is death the ultimate puraty. Maybe. Though in 'Crave' there is a warning from C "If you kill yourself you have to come back and do it all again".

Purity in the work of Sarah Kane- Caspar

Hello everyone,

I'm a dutch student who recently went to see the play Crave from Sarah Kane. Accidentily I'm also following a course on moral and artistic purity and was obviously struck by her use of thic concept. I believe that Sarah Kane craved for a purity that could only be found in death. Death is oblivion, a white light that has no memories, death knows no future and no past, death is innocence. At the time of her death -as some of you undoubtedly know- Kane was working on theater-version of Das leben des Junge Werther's. This romantic also killed himself. Her alias for Crave supposedly wrote a play called impurity....etc etc.
