Molloy, the first of the three masterpieces which constitute Samuel Beckett’s famous trilogy, appeared in French in 1951, followed seven months later by Malone Dies (Malone meurt) and two years later by The Unnamable (L’Innommable). Few works of contemporary literature have been so universally acclaimed as central to their time and to our understanding of the human experience.
What People are Saying About This
Samuel Beckett is one of the great controversial playwrights of our age...as a novelist he is just as important. His novels, like all important works of art, have the stamp of the inevitable on them; they had to be written, and though we suffer reading them, we are glad they have been written.
