Three novels: Molloy, Malone dies, The unnamable

A novel consisting of two meandering, plotless, stream-of-consciousness monologues, one by Molloy, a bedridden vagrant obsessed with finding his mother, and the other by Moran, a private detective who is assigned to find Molloy. Some view the work as a modernistic and experimental excursion into meaninglessness. Both the characters have a similar appearance, similar attitudes, and seem to be seriously mentally disturbed. Some critics argue both are the same person.

  • "Beckett's trilogy examines the meaning of death, and the experience of life as exile from self. Molloy: A degenerate old man flees a detective on a bicycle, trying to return home to his decrepit mother as his legs slowly wither. Malone dies: An aging man anxiously waits to die in his cramped and destitute lodgings, yet death does not come. The unnamable: An indeterminate entity struggles with whether he exists, who else he may have been, who is trying to fool him into believing that he exists, or who else he may have been, while anticipating oblivion, unable to go on, yet having to go on."@en
  • "Few works of contemporary literature are so universally acclaimed as central to our understanding of the human experience as Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett's famous trilogy; consisting of: 'Molloy, ' 'Malone Dies, ' and 'The Unnamable.'"@en
  • "Mysteriously imprisoned, Molloy disappears while looking for his mother; a dying man looks back on his life; and, a nameless individual ponders his existence."
  • ""Je suis dans la chambre de ma mère".Ainsi commençait la première page d'un roman publié a Paris en 1951. L'auteur était un Irlandais inconnu qui écrivait en français. La presse saluait aussitôt l'apparition d'un grand écrivain."
  • "Translations of: Molloy ; Malone meurt ; L'innommable."
  • ""The first novel of Samuel Beckett's mordant and exhilarating midcentury trilogy introduces us to Molloy, who has been mysteriously incarcerated, and who subsequently escapes to go discover the whereabouts of his mother. In the latter part of this curious masterwork, a certain Jacques Moran is deputized by anonymous authorities to search for the aforementioned Molloy. In the trilogy's second novel, Malone, who might or might not be Molloy himself, addresses us with his ruminations while in the act of dying. The third novel consists of the fragmented monologue-delivered, like the monologues of the previous novels, in a mournful rhetoric that possesses the utmost splendor and beauty-of what might or might not be an armless and legless creature living in an urn outside an eating house. Taken together, these three novels represent the high-water mark of the literary movement we call Modernism. Within their linguistic terrain, where stories are taken up, broken off, and taken up again, where voices rise and crumble and are resurrected, we can discern the essential lineaments of our modern condition, and encounter an awesome vision, tragic yet always compelling and always mysteriously invigorating, of consciousness trapped and struggling inside the boundaries of nature."--Publisher's website."

  • "Beckett dispenses with all the customary props of contemporary fiction--including exposition, plot, and increasingly, paragraphs--and turns his attention to consciousness itself. Nobody has ever evoked the pain of existence, or the steady slide toward nonexistence, with such poetic, garrulous accuracy."
  • "Few works of contemporary literature are so universally acclaimed as central to our understanding of the human experience as Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett's famous trilogy. "Molloy," the first of these masterpieces, appeared in French in 1951. It was followed seven months later by "Malone Dies" and two years later by "The Unnamable." All three have been rendered into English by the author."@en
