This article is based on the thesis that the film The Lobster is closely related to two texts written by Samuel Beckett. One is a short story titled Dante and the Lobster, and the other is a short film script titled Film. The study examines all kinds of audial, musical, written, and visual production under the main heading of “text” by taking structural approaches into consideration. The texts mentioned above are analyzed using the deconstructionist approach of Jacques Derrida, through which the duality of Western thought (speech-writing, mind-nature, masculine-feminine) is undermined. The aim of the study was not to extract a steady, unchanging, absolute meaning from the texts, but to show the relationships among the texts and reveal what the texts cause readers to think. It shows that each reading can rise in value accordinng to the closeness of the relationships between texts in the process of inferring.
