Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Molloy, the first of the three masterpieces which constitute Samuel Beckett's famous trilogy, appeared in French in 1951, followed seven months later by Malone Dies and two years later by The Unnamable. Few works of contemporary literature have been so universally acclaimed as being central to their time and to our understanding of the human experience.

Review:

"If there is such a thing as the shock of discovery, I experienced it that day [on reading Molloy]. The simplicity, the beauty, yes, and the terror of the words shook me as little had before or has since. And the man's vision of the world, his painfully honest portrayal thereof, his anti-illusionist stance. And the humor; God, the humor. I waited a day or two, then reread Molloy. The second reading was more exciting than the first. I went on to Malone Dies. Full worthy of the first. Two stunning works. Miracles." Richard Seaver

Review:

"Samuel Beckett is one of the great controversial playwrights of our age....As a novelist he is just as important. His novels, like all important works of art, have the stamp of the inevitable on them: they had to be written and, though we suffer reading them, we are glad that they have been written." Anthony Burgess
