Molloy (novel) Overview

Samuel Beckett’s Molloy, first published in French in 1947, is the first novel of a trilogy which includes Malone Dies and The Unnameable. A representative novel of late modernism, Molloy enacts the futility of existence through the musings of its aimless eponymous hero, and the report describing the equally drifting journey of Jacques Moran, the agent tasked with finding him. The novel deals with themes of existentialism, the deterioration of the body, the instability of knowledge, subjectivity, and the desire for security.
