>>7598227 I haven't read this one yet. But so far I can tell you that Beckett is truly a master.
By the way, what did you think of the ending of Molloy?("It is midnight. The rain is beating on the windows It was not midnight. It was not raining.") Do you think it's about the narrator's role (which would switch from Moran to Beckett)? Or is it more about the time, hence the switch of tense... I'm really interested.
Most of Beckett is transcendent. I think he's the most important figure of the 20th, personally. Whereas Joyce's accomplishments were a (fantastic but) logical continuation of the symbolist tradition, Beckett just came out of nowhere. And he stayed there. We haven't moved past Beckett yet.
>>7599766 >Beckett came out of nowhere dude came out of Joyce's nutsack, his first novels were basically copies of jimmy joyce.. even the one in OP he is just breaking away from Joyce there are still similarities... I think Murphy does mark him finding his own voice though, so to speak
>>7599822 hey your not gonna find a bigger Beckett fan than me, but to say he came out of nowhere is a stretch... If he would've just fucked Joyces crazy sister he prob never would have gotten far enough away from him to really evolve.. and prob produced the greatest novelist of our time today
