Example text

The words of an epitaph are incomplete without the additional information provided by their location.

The words of an epitaph have nothing inherent that attaches them to the world, and have to use “adventitious” deictic means – the “Here lies” and “now” 57 Elizabeth Barry customary on epitaphs – to point at their object. It is a shortcoming for Johnson that such a writer makes such flagrant use of the physical location of his words, while for Wordsworth it is a happy openness of text to place, an organic relationship between flighty words and permanent nature that is not usually possible.

80). Reading Pope’s epitaph on Mrs Corbett, Wordsworth complains further that Pope’s antithetical writing (“So firm yet soft, so strong yet so refined”) does not engage the intellect at all, a charge he might equally have laid at Beckett’s narrator’s door: “one half of the process is mechanical, words doing their own work, and one half of the line manufacturing the rest” (Wordsworth 1974, II. 80; 79). Similarly, the narrator of First Love concedes that “the second and last or rather latter 49 Elizabeth Barry line limps a little perhaps” but concludes, unlike Wordsworth, that “that is no great matter” (Beckett 1995, 96).

The Unnamable, with similar concerns, defers a development of the narrative until “time is not so short, and the mind more composed” (358). But this will never happen. In Beckett’s world, time is always short, and the mind will only lose integrity in the future.
