Whenever Beckett used a certain word, he did so quite consciously, and if he used it again in another text we can be fairly sure that the repetition is intentional and serves a purpose. At least in Beckett's later works this is even true with respect to rather inconspicuous and unsuspicious words such as "way," "always" and "away." A close examination of the appearance of these words in some highly condensed and concentrated later texts shows that the lexeme 'way' usually occurs in clusters which establish a meaning significantly different from what is associated with these terms in everyday usage.
