Title: 'Here it is': the space of being.

Abstract: So says Molloy, “[i]t was the beginning, do you understand? Whereas now it’s nearly the end…here it is” (Beckett 4). Whether Molloy is referring to the stack of papers before him, the beginning of the novel or the beginning of his existence, “here it is” opens up spaces of multiple realities within a present moment. It is a space of being between the beginning and the end of the text, between life and death. It is also a space of imagination, dominated by thought existing in language, time and space. From the beginning of Molloy till the end of The Unnameable, Beckett’s tramps voice an existence within physical and mental spaces. Through this, the human existence is a temporal impression captured by language within a space of time.
