Explores how Beckett modifies the fundamental structure of the outward and return journey by reducing it to obsessive repetitions getting nowhere. Hart begins by examining the large structural patterns of the plays to which he then relates the details of Beckett's language. Describing Beckett's voice, Hart analyses the stress on falling cadences, evocative of despair. He concludes by suggesting that, however depressing the content of the plays, they generate intense aesthetic delight. A detailed bibliography of Beckett's works is also included.
