Beckett's trilogy examines the meaning of death, and the experience of life as exile from self. Molloy: A degenerate old man flees a detective on a bicycle, trying to return home to his decrepit mother as his legs slowly wither. Malone dies: An aging man anxiously waits to die in his cramped and destitute lodgings, yet death does not come. The unnamable: An indeterminate entity struggles with whether he exists, who else he may have been, who is trying to fool him into believing that he exists, or who else he may have been, while anticipating oblivion, unable to go on, yet having to go on.
