Divided into two parts, the author’s analytical text considers the games of Beckett’s narrative repetition and thematic reduplication. The essay investigates how Beckett’s novels undermine textual linearity and the myths of self-transparency, subverting the order of discourse through intricate strategies of wordplay and narrative technique.
