image of Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

When Joyce names his hero after a character from Ovid, the name indicates the subjectivity of multiple personalities and reflects Joyce's strategy of parallelism between contemporary life and mythical imagery. Samuel Beckett is one of the few who fully understood the nature of Joyce's nomenclature, and the existence of the character Belacqua in his early fiction, taken from Dante's , bears witness to this awareness. By comparing Beckett's system of naming with Joyce's, I would like to examine the way in which Beckett treats proper names.
