    Samuel Becket has turned me on with the very first phrase in the book The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new There is no reality, only a simulacrum of reality individuals entertain themselves with bizarre occult practices and weird intellectual discourses Humanity is a well with two buckets, one going down to be filled, the other coming up to be emptied Isn t it a perfect metaphor of birth and death, of knowledge and ignorance, of memory and oblivion Murphy s mind pictured itself as a large hollow sphere, hermetically closed to the universe without This was not an impoverishment, for it excluded nothing that it did not itself contain Nothing ever had been, was or would be in the universe outside it but was already present as virtual, or actual, or virtual rising into actual, or actual falling into virtual, in the universe inside it A ...

    Scintillating, superb, fractal geometry in words.Yeah, that verdict stands too.Rating 5 of fiveThe Publisher Says MURPHY, when first published in 1938, was Beckett s first novel and third work of ficiton Very Irish in the post Joycean tradition, it nevertheless was the beginning of a new form of literary expression as some discerning critics recognized at the time, drawing heavily on the author s time spent in London as a young man, and especially on his experiences as a male nurse It has for many years been one of the most popular novels of one of the most seminal figures of the twentieth century There s a sort of comfort in the dry, bare, language, in the spooky imagery and the incantatory repetitions Howard Kinlay My Review This is always hard when describing Beckett Murphy loves Celia, the prostitute Miss Counihan, surprisingly anthropoid for an Irishwoman, loves Murphy Neary, a philosopher, comes to love Murphy as his best friend Then there s this guy Murphy plays chess with in the mental hospital where Murphy goes to work.Okay, it can t really be this hard Murphy, an Irish depressive, has to get a job...

    My very first Beckett Yesterday morning, when I finally closed this book, I was speechless This is a work of a genius.Reading the first half was a bit of a challenge though If you are not used to reading modernist or postmodernist works, there is a big chance that Beckett s writing style would discourage you Samuel Beckett 1906 1989 apprenticed with his friend and idol my other favorite Irish writer the author of Ulysses 5 stars too , James Joyce 1882 1941 So, their styles have similarities but still distinctly recognizable I liked them both Although, Murphy of course is a lot shorter and easier to understand than Ulysses But I have to admit again that I am not sure I understood everything that Beckett wanted to convey in this book Like the attitude that I used for me to finish Ulysses, I just went on and on with my reading even if I had to reread some paragraphs twice or thrice This explains why it took me 1 month to finish this book There were so many parts where I asked myself Huh Again What did he say However, in the second half, when Murphy was already working as a nurse in the hospital for crazy people, that s when the story made a huge turn and everything started to fall into right places The conversation of his friends at the sickbed of M...

    Thought I d review this as so few have, and this is Beckett s first, best, and funniest novel.

    Many people think of Beckett s characters, and they come up with something like this

    These post apocalyptic, hollowed out characters sitting around in the blank landscapes of Beckett s plays have been blasted to hell and back they patiently accept whatever happens to them and seem to be waiting for some form of grace.In contrast, Murphy the title character of the novel isn t going anywhere, but he couldn t be happier Unlike so many of the characters in Beckett s plays, Murphy is bursting with life He might be one hell of an odd duck, but he s alive and hopping Murphy has no desire to be housebroken by society or to parcel out his days and nights as productively as a character like Robinson Crusoe Murphy isn t alarmed by the void that sends Lucy Snowe Villette into a near frenzy, but rather seeks out these unstructured spaces actively To achieve personal bliss, Murphy sits tied by seven scarves and naked in his rocking chair of undressed teak, guaranteed not to crack, warp, shrink, corrode, or creak at night This rather bizarre arrangement works to give his body pleasure and free his mind For it was not until his body was appeased that he could come alive in his mind.And life in his mind gave him pleasure, such plea...

    4.5 Nine years ago, I was in love with someone whose favourite book was Murphy this copy was from a second hand bookshop en route between our flats He was one of those people who never lends anything, and in any case I wouldn t have been able to read and return it in good time, as this time that year I was embarking on months of convalescence following a very severe bout of flu It was never my intention to leave it quite this long, but as per an old comment whenever I picked it up, I found the first couple of pages too depressing Honestly, what was I reading Must ve made some skewed assumptions, for different stuff was happening on the paper this time And Beckett is not the writer I thought he was, a minimalist miserablist my only previous experience being a not very careful teenage reading of Waiting For Godot whilst standing in a library, it being too short to waste a loan on I was reminded of none so much as Pynchon the black humour, the ridiculousness, the near farcical caper, the breadth of vocabulary this required even frequent looking up than Pynchon as Beckett s v...

    Murphy is a strange, sad, melancholic and sometimes funny novel on madness, boredom, misunderstanding and isolation Murphy, our main character and isolated solipsist , stuck in a void, jobless and work shy, decides to withdraw from life away from his prostitute fiance What follows is Beckett s bleak and absurd humour on everyday life, an outlook shared by his alter ego on paper, Murphy, and his ambitious wordplay When writers treat language as...

    DNF after 108 pages Unfortunately, I had no linguistic access to find favor with this novel It wasn t just my cup of tea, this tea was definitely too strong for me.
