That's cool. I read "Molloy" by Beckett and it was...sort of weird. It switched tone and style pretty dramatically halfway through, which was a relief, since the first part was not all that good. This was really my only experience with Beckett. I'm not sure if this was one of his worse novels (I kind of [...] so)? I'm not a huge fan of experimental fiction, so I haven't really gone back.

I think Beckett is an author who I enjoy reading critical interpretations of more than I actually enjoy his works themselves. They often seem a bit grating and obnoxiously equivocal. I'm not really sure what the voice in that play is going on about. And I found I had a hard time paying attention after a couple minutes. What do you think Beckett was trying to say with that piece?
