    Reading Beckett is not easy, since on the surface he seems to be talking of that which is rationally non existent, which doesn t exist anywhere but perhaps in the subconscious of a mind a mind which is set on the path of self exploration An exploration, which is not merely to find a place, a balance with the world but rather to understand why is it that nothing makes sense or rather why nothing makes pe...

    Getting through this loosely related trilogy of short novels was one of the hardest reading experiences I ve ever had, and I m not exactly sure if I enjoyed it, or even knew what Beckett was getting at half the time My interest level throughout was all over the place, as the below graphic demonstrates Reading this was similar to reading Proust I had to be absolutely ON while reading, or I d lose the train of thought, and have to re read paragraphs And when there are literally 80 page segme Getting through this loosely related trilogy of short novels was one of the hardest reading experiences I ve ever had, and I m not exactly sure if I enjoyed it, or even knew what Beckett was getting at half the time My interest level throughout was all over the place, as the below graphic demonstrates Reading this was similar to reading Proust I had to be absolutely ON while reading, or I d lose the train of thought, and have to re read paragraphs And when there are literally 80 page segments in here without a paragraph break, that becomes an ordeal Sometimes I would get in the flow mostly during Molloy and the first parts of Malone Dies , but other times I would just be reading words without understanding meaning.And honestly, I m not sure I understood much in the way of meaning in general I can get around the fact that there isn t much in the way of plot, charac...

    Beckett definitely gets 5 stars from me, but he s not for everyone Nor is he for every mood this book sat on my shelf for years before I found myself in the right place to give it a read But once I began Molloy and realized I was feeling it, it shot to the top of my most brilliant and personally influential reads list I actually cried when I was reading it because I thought it was so great, and I t...

    The human Self is not an unvarying thing, not a single unity It is a synthetic whole, a synthesis synthesizing itself from disjoint elements of perception, body, state of mind, self consciousness The synthesis is effected by the continuity of memory and action, by transcendental apperception of self, by one s conscious idea of oneself, by reification in the gaze of the Other, and by a unifying conceptual framework, both one s own and that of the social whole In his trilogy, Beckett examines t The human Self is not an unvarying thing, not a single unity It is a synthetic whole, a synthesis synthesizing itself from disjoint elements of perception, body, state of mind, self consciousness The synthesis is effected by the continuity of memory and action, by transcendental apperception of self, by one s conscious idea of oneself, by reification in the gaze of the Other, and by a unifying conceptual framework, both one s own and that of the social whole In his trilogy, Beckett examines this synthesis by dissolving it, revealing every element in a state of decay and breaking apart from the others.The first of the trilogy, Molloy, gives us two characters crumblingdispossessed of self It dwells on their grotesque, painful, ever rotting physicality, the errant extremes of their emotions They are the kind of miserable, erratic individuals found in Dostoevsky and Hamsun, but here they are taken to their oute...

    Mind bending, breathless prose unlike anything else Beckett s fascinating, disturbing, exhausting and droll depiction of consciousness stripped of all outside contact and reference points by the time we stumble, benumbed, into The Unnamable will definitely not appeal to everyone, but I found it hypnotic even the third book, which friends fans of the first two had said was unreadab...
