Return to Book Page. Preview — The Unnamable by Samuel Beckett. The Unnamable consists entirely of a disjointed monologue from the perspective of an unnamed presumably befkett and immobile protagonist. There is no concrete plot or setting – and whether the other characters “Mahood” formerly “Basil” and “Worm” actually exist or whether they are facets of the narrator himself is debatable.
The protagonist also claims authorship o The Unnamable consists entirely of a disjointed monologue from the perspective of an unnamed presumably unnamable and immobile protagonist. The protagonist also claims authorship of the main characters in the two previous novels of the Trilogy and Beckett’s earlier novels Murphy, Mercier and Camier, and Watt.
The novel is a mix of recollections and existential musings on the part of its narrator, many of which pertain specifically to the possibility that the narrator is constructed by the language he speaks. Other ‘characters’ a stretch to call them distinctly different than befkett narrator serve as the passive recipient of the dialogue and in many places as the narrator suggests the dialogue’s genesis.
The novel builds in its despairing tone until the ending, which consists mainly of very long run-on sentences. It closes with the phrase “I can’t go on, I’ll go on,” which was later used as the title of an anthology of Beckett works. The Unnamable e, a novel by Samuel Beckett.
It is the third and final entry in Beckett’s “Trilogy” of novels, which begins with Molloy followed by Malone Dies. It was originally published in French as L’Innommable and later translated by the author into English.

The Unnamable Samuel Beckett A masterpiece from Samuel Beckett, though may be a bit awkward to read,could bwckett indecipherable at times but after a while you move with the flow and get consumed by it; it would be felt like a novel that does not have any plot, only some disjointed images which would stay in your mind. The book is not a prose actually rather it can be said as a long dazzling poem on the very human existence. The Unnameable, where the dilemmas, which were brought up by the author in Mol The Unnamable Samuel Beckett A masterpiece from Samuel Beckett, though may be a bit awkward to read,could be indecipherable at times but after a innkmbrable you move with the flow and get consumed by it; it would be felt like a novel that does not have any plot, only some disjointed images which would stay in your mind.
The Unnameable, where the dilemmas, which were brought up by the author in Molloy and Malone Diesfinally come along here. The starting lines themselves set the tone for the book, Where now? Questions, hypothesis, call them that. Keep going, going on, call that going, call that on. Can it injombrable that one day, off it goes on, that one day I simply stayed in, in bdckett, instead of going out, in the old way, out to spend day and night as far away innombrablr possible, it wasn’t far.
Perhaps that is how it began. There innombrablle only thoughts thinking themselves, ever babbling around but never moving forward. The narrative of the books is innombable not reliable, just like narrator, which keeps on changing throughout the book from first person to third. The narrator, or rather self-immersive narrator, of the book goes with its title and is unnamable in true self, who is unreliable and just shares his thoughts, immobile for eternity, uncommunicative, always curious about words themselves but not their meanings.
Of me whom they have reduced to reason. It is true poor Worm in not to blame for this. But let me complete my views before I shit bfckett them. For if I am Mahood, I am Worm too, plop. Unfortunately I am afraid, as always, of going on. The book ponders upon various unnombrable of existence- solitude, human suffering- even the very problem of existence itself- meaning of existence, problem of one’s ontological loneliness and nothingness of life; the narrator succeeds in scaling down his need – from wanting to reach his mother, to wanting to die, to wanting to stop speaking, which in essence is stripping of humanity to the core problems of life, to the core of life itself to know what is down there.
Yet amid all the evidence that life is meaningless, hopeless, full of despair, anguish, one must go on. The book could be called as a representative of human consciousness trying to come to terms with its existence by telling itself stories featuring itself as hero of its own fictions, it resorts to paradox to describe the paradoxical nature of human consciousness divided within itself. Beckett has worked on Postmodernist themes in ”The Unnamable” as it could said to be based upon post-structuralist literary theory; whose characteristic is innojbrable of grand narratives and unification of all knowledge.
The novel is almost without “significant” event; its subject is befkett, the narrating voice creating a world out of language. Before, between and after the jabber of words that constitute the fiction is silence. As one gradually moves towards the inevitable end of the book, it may be felt like a lucid dream is coming to end, which one may have started to enjoy now and may feel an urge to be forever in that dream; but there’s no need to go on, what beeckett one get even if one goes on, for there’s nothing to be achieved, nothing could be achieved, there was never anything to be achieved; life is so, one can’t give any inherent purpose to life, there’s no inherent purpose of life, there was never any inherent purpose of life, however one must go on, one will go on.

There I was, happily standing innomhrable one leg. The one on my right, I mean, since it could have been the one on my left and that would have also been right. Nothing wrong with the left. Perfectly right the left, I think. I could feel my quadriceps, of the right leg, fully engaged and my kneecap pulled up tight.
That is according to what I remember, of course, because it could have been different. My leg was as continuous as a column on which my body rightly hung. There veckett a bit of a m There I was, happily standing on one leg.
There was a bit of a magical balance in the way my hips and shoulders and backbone counterweighed each other. But Becmett was certainly firm innombrable my self. My fear was that I knew, or I suspected, that Malone was coming, and since Molloy had gone in the other direction and could come back–or was I just hoping that he would come back when in reality there was no possibility that he would come back?
That would be an astronomical collusion. So ihnombrable was my fear. But no, there was no sign of Molloy. What happened was that Malone came to me and gave me a little tap on the shoulder. And he threw me off balance. Just when I was understanding the world from my strong position.
I changed legs and now stood with the tight muscles of my left leg: It was as right as with the right leg. Otherwise it would be superstitious rather than bsckett and certainly not more certain. On my left leg now, and here comes Molloy who did not show up before. Right now I can see the future.
He bbeckett come to me and tap me on my right shoulder. No, the left shoulder, and will throw me off balance. That is what I would say if that were to happen. But I am not sure. As if I needed a body and the laws of physics to find my balance, my center, my point of view, my self — my conscience. But this is all entirely unaccountable. Molloy and Malone and their hats came and went imagined and remembered or forgotten.
But they did make me feel like a little beckeft rather than a Human. For Worm substituted them and I heard the words, or I read them with my inner voice, or it was the voice of that other one who does not want to name himself.
Just when I thought I was beginning to understand Beckett, as if understanding were based on one or the other of my stupid legs, when it is all about consciousness and its beckettt. Understanding and sense or illusion of self.

Reading this is like bexkett a piece of ice dissolve in a glass of water. A water made of the runny and translucent and colourless matter of a general consciousness with no identity, but which leaves dregs at the bottom. It cannot be named.
