This novel is dedicated in its entirety to the bumbling, often obsessive circumstances of its protagonist and shares, with Beckett’s other works, a profound, unvarnished view of the human condition in all of its absurd self-involvement. Appealing both for its formal structure and for its demonstration of how much can be accomplished within very narrow boundaries, Watt is an inspiration to the creative artist who hits a dead end, but just keeps on slogging ahead.
