Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Now compiled in one volume, these three novels, which are among the most beautiful and disquieting of Samuel Beckett's later prose works, work together with the powerful resonance of his famous Three Novels: Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable. In Company, a voice comes to "one on his back in the dark" and speaks to him. Ill Seen Ill Said focuses attention on an old woman in a cabin who is part of the objects, landscape, rhythms, and movements of an incomprehensible universe. And in Worstward Ho, Beckett explores a tentative, uncertain existence in a world devoid of rational meaning and purpose. Here is language pared down to its most expressive, confirming Beckett's position as one of the great writers of our time.

"No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."-Worstward Ho
It says three novels, but this slim volume of late Beckett writings comes in at only 99 pages, so they're not even novellas. Hell, they're not even really stories, but strange mood pieces that find Bekcett paring language down to its most elemental form. I can't say that I get it or like it, but it is intriguing. A sort of companion piece to his early three novel collection ("Malone Dies," "Molloy," "The Unnamable"), although this is the most spare expression of Beckett's enigmatic, gnomic talent. "Worsening shades. In the dim void."
