    Two years ago, 22nd February 2012, I bought a complete set of Samuel Beckett s works It is composed of 4 hefty books that include all his novels, plays, poems and literary criticisms I read it right away but got stalled so many times Not that his works are not fully engaging but their meanings are not easy to grasp for probably somebody like me who is not a literature graduate in college Beckett s books have now became a distraction whenever I wanted to be delighted with beautiful and intriguing prose even without understanding the plot, theme or message of the story.Even if it took me almost 2 years to finish this first volume, I really enjoyed every minute that I leafed through it Beckett is a class of his own James Joyce is his influence but I would say that Beckett is contemporary thus he is engaging Or maybe because I am reading the corrected version in this centenary edition of Grove Press I have not sampled other edition of any of Beckett s works so I really don t know All I can say that the way he wrote here was like reading any other literary works of existing still alive writers It s just that reading Beckett does not always translate to comprehension for me There are three novels in this first books Murphy 5 stars for me is about an aging man who plays pacifist chess His story is strang...

    When I purchased the four volume The Grove Centenary Editions of Samuel Beckett Boxed Set in 2007, I went straight to the second volume, having read all of Beckett s plays and then The Complete Short Prose, 1929 1989 on the recommendation of my unreciprocated college crush, Katherine E Ellison, who had also recommended to me the Trilogy of Molloy 1951 , Malone Dies 1951 , and The Unnamable 1953 I didn t know much about these early books, which on glancing through, look startling conventional by comparison to the later books, although the principal characters are mentioned near the end of The Unnamable drawing all the books together except the later How It Is , which came out in 1961 At the end of Mercier and Camier, Watt meets the title characters, and Mercier mentions having known Murphy Watt makes a statement that seems to obliquely refer to The Unnamable, which was yet to be written in 1946 but probably would have been well known to most readers when the book was finally published in 1970 These three books all have a wit and charm and even the...

    The 1st book of the enigmatic four volume set of Beckett s canon He is the most courageous, remorseless writer going, and the he grinds my nose in the shit the I am grateful to him Harold Pinter

    The interesting aspect to this collection is seeing Beckett s writing before he found voice and gave up writing about anything, which is to say everything Murphy is surprisingly straightforward story for Beckett The exploration of what is a body and what is the mind is achingly too obvious Although, Murphy contains one of the best opening sentences in all of literature The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new Murphy finds Beckett trying to be too witty for his own good.Watt is where Beckett finds himself in his prose The ludicrous situations are built upon repetitions and echoes of these and repetitions never realized Beckett reduces his thoughts to vulgarity of the immediate situation without grandstanding Watt can be tedious in spots where situations are weighed in their varied permutations, despite being taxing at times to read through These arrive a...

    This was the first I d ever read of Beckett s fiction, having some familiarity with his stage and film works Anyway, it comes to me at a time when I ve been reading a lot about Modernism as an aesthetic movement so I was thinking a lot about Murphy, Watt, and Mercier and Camier as not only works on their own but trying to get at something angry and political with their absurdity All three novels seem to take place in the same kind of mystic Irish Night Town of Ulysses or The Third Policeman where associations blur and everyone seems stranded in a twilight now Beckett s now is stagnant and unchanging and his characters are mechanical and replaceable In this collection, I think I enjoyed Watt most of all as something that fits with my own tastes, but your mileage may vary I think I m fond of the way that book in particular points to all the limits of knowledge and the sort of mania that can come ab...
