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.

I've only read a few pages of that but it definitely comes off that way.

My fav book of all time. Better than Joyce, Camus and Pynchon in its absurdity and its capturing of the true isolation of life

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.

Beckett is literally autism incarnate. Don't know why anyone without autism would stand that torture.

>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

What about his writing makes him autistic? (I've only read Waiting for Godot.)
>>
>>7599786
He is literally the inspiration for everything Joyce write you fucking idiot, not the other way around
>>
>>7599811
(You)/10, but you don't even deserve it

oh I agree, but he's not remembered for those first novels, though, is he? His most startling work exists in the later novels and early plays.

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

Brilliant opener. Good read but i only remember it in sections.

Id say a 3/5
