    This motor geek can t hold a candle to Joyce, but it s a decent amature blurb.How am I a poser LOL you pretentious nerds make me sick.Omg his prose fucking suck it s so annoying that my eyes are bleeding, James s 1000 times the writeryou see, Sam has his own distinct style, that most dislike in the beginning, then they realize the beauty of it Sorta like Raymond Federman.what a stupid comment James were influenced by Beckett.I love James Joyce to death, but Beckett did a better job at this one story.Disagree Sam sounds like he can barely get the words out and the pens sound like they were wroitten in a pub.Sill you that guy s name is James Jimminy Joyce.what the hell is that shit That was offensive for James Joyce.I know but that blurb sucksjames joyce sux your fat ass.Well I m sorry for beeing one of these James Joyce is better or No Beckett is better But I like James Joyce way better than Beckett, it s ok for me that some of you likes Beckett better, but for me he meh did it kinda wrong.Their name is B ckett James Joyce is better idiots lol Beckett is better you dumbshits Am I the only person who likes both writers even the blurbs...

    Adorno who intended to dedicate Aesthetic Theory to Beckett has Minima Moralia unfold beneath a banner that is also Beckett s When things are bad, it s good to know the worst Beckett is the worst That I distill some poisonous joy in reading him confirms that things are probably worse than I thought Anguish, confusion, futility, impossible desires, irrepressible obsessions, failure, compulsion, delusive certainties denuded but still tenaciously held, disgust, obscure punishments, unremitting bewilderment, frustrated intelligence, debilitated communications, all signs and no directions, a life smart enough to think what could be mourning the stupidity of what s become, hope that loathes itself for not sensibly surrendering, that s my review of Beckett, insofar as I m sententious enough to fabricate one Texts for Nothing is a miserable masterpiece, a tombstone on The Age of Man I don t know why I read anything else or why people bother to keep writing after that Oh, right, because if we ve learned anything from Beckett a valid question it s that we don t have a choice AND we have to go on His work is breathtaking, sigh after sigh, in that you d prefer to just stop breathing altogether It s soul crushing, and good riddance It s ultra realistic, there s too much reality here, you can t get away from it It s brilliant and horrible, like a demiurge of ...

    There is something transcendental, in the Kantian sense, when it comes to reading Beckett, at least for me Truthfully, I think his work could be approached from realist and idealist perspectives, in terms of how reality is perceived, but for me, when I say his work is transcendental, I mean that in reading his short stories you can only determine what is going on by applying your own experience to it, which is then compounded by what you read in Beckett and then re applied again as your new experience upon continuing to read If that makes any sense at all It probably doesn t, but then again, that s how I experienced these short stories They made perfect sense to me at the same time as I was struggling to figure out what the hell was going on Beckett accosts you with physical descriptions of landscapes that seem almost ethereal at the same time as he is writing in depth about physical bodies, and his prose is both as melodic and lulling as it is complex As such, I found with the later storie...

    I have so many Beckett editions below are thoughts on only the stories in this collection not availible in the other standard Grove editions I read these as part of my project of re reading the complete works of Samuel Beckett in chronological order Just about finished with Dream of Fair to Middling Women Read the Assumption story here and the two pieces lifted from Dream Adolescent drivel, I m sorry to say I enjoyed A Case in a Thousand, however, although it can hardly be said to be Beckett ian If he s gone another route he might have been quite brilliant there too All Strange Away and Imagination Dead Imagine Not much new ground here, but the beginning of an even stripped down bodies in spaces delineated geometrically Personality and voice are getting stripped away And the characters although less distinct are becoming plural Like false starts for in the theme of How It Is Enough New ground Distinctly Beckett yet a departure from the short texts of the early 60s Not a lot to it, but delightful I think Not sure if I would have had it not had Beckett s name at the top Narrator here appears to be female While there have been females mentioned in some of these mid period texts mostly inert bodies this is the first female narrator in S.B s oeuvres up to this point I think Ping Perfect little poem text stripped to minimum maybe but almost not there Lessness Much as the title suggests Stripp...

    skipped a lot of the early joyce imitative stuff but everything from first love onward is incredible, in particular texts for nothing, which in my eyes does everything the trilogy does but in about 1 6 of the length how did beckett do it these abject pant shitting narrators cut very deep.

    I finished about two thirds of this book, and roughly 80% of what I read was sheer gibberish It almost goes without saying that Beckett was a great artist, but I have scant appreciation for l art pour l art Sure, there are some great phrases in here, material well worth appropriating for use in coherent writing, but these lines are hidden among interminable stretches of logorrhea Yes, works like Assumption, First Love, the three Stories, and Enough are autotelic masterpiecesbut so what At least for now, I can t bear to read another sentence of this collection Endgame, Krapp s Last Tape, Waiting for Godot, Happy Daysthese were incredible works But they succeed partly because of a performative element that s lacking here and no, I m not about to read the Fizzles aloud I d be willing to argue that thi...
