Beckett's Mythology: The Search for Self in Molloy
Plein, Linda H.
It is the intention of this paper to examine Molloy as it documents the illusionary search for a Self outside of time and language, and as it constitutes the culmination of Existential thought as demonstrated in the early works of Sartre and Camus. By placing the novel within a mythological framework, an attempt will be made to penetrate past the apparent incoherence and deceptive use of language which serve to define the Beckettian motif, to a clearer understanding of the "realisme" toward which the entire Trilogy moves.
