Book Description:

The Unnamable by Samuel Beckett, in a new edition of the classic novel, published for the first time by Faber with an introduction by Beckett scholar Steven Connor.

About the Author:

Samuel Beckett was born in Dublin in 1906 and graduated from Trinity College. He settled in Paris in 1937, after travels in Germany and periods of residence in London and Dublin. He remained in France during the Second World War and was active in the French Resistance. From the spring of 1946 his plays, novels, short fiction, poetry and criticism were largely written in French. With the production of En attendant Godot in Paris in 1953, Beckett's work began to achieve widespread recognition. During his subsequent career as a playwright and novelist in both French and English he redefined the possibilities of prose fiction and writing for the theatre. Samuel Beckett won the Prix Formentor in 1961 and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1969. He died in Paris in December 1989.

He speaks of previous selves ('all these Murphys, Molloys, and Malones.') as diversions from the need to stop speaking altogether. But, as with the other novels in the trilogy, the prose is full of marvellous precisions, full of its own reasons for keeping going. .perhaps the words have carried me to the threshold of my story, before the door that opens on my story, that would surprise me, if it opens, it will be I, will be the silence, where I am, I don't know, I'll never know, in the silence you don't know, you must go on, I can't go on, I'll go on.

Seller:
Grand Eagle Retail
(Wilmington, DE, U.S.A.)

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. The third of Beckett's post-war novels, after Molloy and Malone Dies, The Unnamable was first published in French, and in Beckett's English in 1958. 'Like a great horned owl in an aviary', the unnamable narrator - so named because he knows not who he may be - sits nowhere and speaks of previous selves ('all these Murphys, Molloys, and Malones do not fool me') as so many diversions from the need to stop speaking altogether. As with the earlier novels, the prose has its own indomitable precisions, its afflicted but desirous reasons for being. The Unnamable - so named because he knows not who he may be - is from a nameless place. He speaks of previous selves ('all these Murphys, Molloys, and Malones.') as diversions from the need to stop speaking altogether. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780571244645
