…and another thing about Beckett

20140508-120637.jpg

Another thing about Beckett’s work that marks it as different from modern stories is its circularity. Maybe I have missed something but the characters in the stories I am currently reading do not change, or have a moment of insight, or transform in any obvious way. They are thrown into the world, wander about then shuffle off to die. Just like life.
Perhaps the change occurs in the reader?
