    1. Four short works by one of the great oddballs in literary history, THE Samuel Beckett Funny, wise, philisophical, and painful, Beckett s work is always a treat to readbut it can also often be extremely challenging His obscure work is particularly challenging And is sort of known for being so This collection is one of the craziest things I have ever come across Even by Beckett standards its super weird and jaw dropping There are choppy sentences coupled with overlong ones, the wording is jarring [...]

    2. In my ongoing reading of Beckett from start to finish in order I had thought to exclude the theatrical writings not because I have a bias against them or anything, but just because I wanted to go in order and the dating of all of these short and fragmentary texts got a bit complex Anyway, picked this volume up because it includes one of the shorter prose pieces from what I ve come to think of as Beckett s dry period in terms of prose and novels particularly from 57 to 77, All Strange Away As I v [...]

    3.

    4. Note I only read Rockaby, as I actually read a compilation of Not I Footfalls Rockaby.All three plays were not clear, but the message gets through even though you aren t completely clear on what exactly happened I watched the plays before reading them, which was slightly confusing, since the monologue in Not I is uttered at thought speed Very fast, especially if it has a stream of consciousness read fragmented way about it.I digress Not I The weirdest of the three, and the least accessible I had [...]

    5. Would give 3.5 The pieces here are hits and misses either the really good sort, or the absolutely missable.Rockaby is haunting.
