About this Recording

BECKETT, S.: Unnamable (The) (Unabridged)

The Unnamable is the third novel in Becket’s trilogy, three remarkable prose works in which men of increasingly debilitating physical circumstances act, ponder, consider and rage against impermanence and the human condition. The Unnamable is without doubt the most uncompromising text, and it is read here in startling fashion by Sean Barrett.



Disc 1

  The Unnamable
1.   Where now Who now When now 00:03:39
2.   Malone is there 00:03:40
3.   Let us try and see where these considerations lead 00:05:11
4.   That I am not stone deaf is shown… 00:04:30
5.   Why did I have myself represented… 00:03:13
6.   The other advances full upon me 00:03:31
7.   Perhaps it is time I paid a little attention… 00:03:40
8.   How, in such conditions, can I write… 00:03:30
9.   I hope this preamble will soon come to an end… 00:04:53
10.   I, of whom I know nothing… 00:03:22
11.   Can I keep nothing then… 00:04:21
12.   I’ll ask no more questions… 00:03:54
13.   But this is thinking again 00:03:51
14.   But now, is it I now, I on me… 00:03:57
15.   But let us first suppose… 00:04:52
16.   Let the man explain himself… 00:03:40
17.   Labyrinthine torment that can’t be grasped… 00:03:33


Disc 2

  The Unnamable
1.   And yet sometimes it seems… 00:03:47
2.   But obstacles, it appears, can be removed… 00:04:09
3.   In the evening, after supper… 00:03:53
4.   This touching picture of my situation… 00:03:48
5.   From that moment on… 00:05:02
6.   So let us consider now what really occurred 00:04:31
7.   What is strange is… 00:04:02
8.   I might as well tell another of Mahood’s stories… 00:05:02
9.   I hope this gives a fair picture… 00:05:11
10.   This story is no good… 00:04:13
11.   Wrong again, wrong again… 00:05:29
12.   The last step! 00:05:10
13.   Yes, I feel the moment has come… 00:04:17
14.   Two labours then… 00:04:45
15.   On now to serious matters… 00:04:15


Disc 3

  The Unnamable
1.   Worm, worm, it’s between the three of us… 00:04:26
2.   What is there to add, to these particulars 00:05:10
3.   But enough of this cursed first person… 00:04:09
4.   I shall now sum up 00:01:51
5.   Hours have passed… 00:04:32
6.   Others. One alone, then others 00:03:48
7.   Ah if only they could begin… 00:03:34
8.   Where am I 00:04:51
9.   But one thing at a time 00:03:21
10.   Of what is it the time to speak 00:05:47
11.   But let us close this parenthesis… 00:04:10
12.   He’s coming, that’s the main thing 00:02:47
13.   They look, to see if he has stirred 00:04:03
14.   It is strange they do not go… 00:03:26
15.   But the eye, let’s leave him his eye… 00:04:42
16.   But Worm suffers only from the noise… 00:04:31
17.   Some simple thing, a box… 00:03:54


Disc 4

  The Unnamable
1.   But what calm, apart from the discourse… 00:04:10
2.   Is there then no hope 00:05:54
3.   Forward! 00:04:22
4.   Perhaps they are somewhere there… 00:03:03
5.   But a little animation now… 00:05:05
6.   But this isn’t Worm speaking 00:02:51
7.   But how can you think and speak… 00:04:08
8.   This will never end… 00:03:32
9.   Oh I know… 00:05:41
10.   But come to think of it… 00:04:50
11.   How all comes right in the end… 00:03:22
12.   And now for the it, I prefer that… 00:03:45
13.   Go mad, yes… 00:02:43
14.   The fact is they no longer know… 00:04:47
15.   … I hear them… 00:04:11
16.   … it’s a lie, what would I understand with… 00:05:21


Disc 5

  The Unnamable
1.   But I really mustn’t ask… 00:04:48
2.   Yes, but there it is… 00:04:06
3.   No no, no head either… 00:04:12
4.   Now, there is no one left 00:04:01
5.   And yet I have memories… 00:04:00
6.   But it didn’t happen like that… 00:03:28
7.   But once again the fable… 00:05:13
8.   I notice one thing… 00:04:58
9.   Someone speaks, someone hears… 00:04:03
10.   He must have travelled… 00:05:14
11.   The silence, a word on the silence… 00:03:44
12.   They love each other… 00:02:19
13.   The silence… 00:03:57
14.   But when it falters… 00:04:21
15.   I know it well 00:03:34
16.   The place, I’ll make it all the same… 00:04:10
17.   … I must be extremely old… 00:06:42
