Immanent Thinking in Worstward Ho

image of Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

Worstward Ho interrogates what it means for a text to imagine itself in the process of its own creation. Its rising and falling patterns of creation and decreation with respect to narrative, character, semantics, and syntax demonstrate a kind of immanent thinking as the text modulates between being and non-being. Worstward Ho manifests intensive creativity in its methods of allusion across and beyond Beckett’s oeuvre. These literary deformations bear morphological similarities with the gyri and sulci, the ridges and grooves in the human cortex that provide the human brain with significantly enhanced neural connectivity and processing power.
