    The Best Samuel Beckett Books recommended by Mark Nixon. Samuel Beckett remains one of the most significant writers of the twentieth century. Ruthlessly experimental, his plays, novels, and poems represent a sustained attack on the realist tradition.   "Watt" is a good example of his work, relatively short, and relatively simple, but still likely to provoke great consternation among any who are not used to Beckett's gushing and admirable style, but great enjoyment among those who take it on its own life-affirming t is a great writer for those readers who seek a literary puzzle, a 5/5(5).

    A certain number of things happen to Watt, he takes a certain number of actions, he engages in a certain number of conversations, and he ends the story in the book in a certain meaningful fashion. The entire story is told in Beckett's trademark effusive style, a rollicking, bizzare, but highly entertaining profusion.4/5(40).

But Watt is also, incongruously, the most lovable of all Beckett’s texts, once the reader learns to respond (as Watt to Mrs Gorman) to its curious charms. The more distressing, then, that for the first six decades of its existence (as manuscript and book) the text of Watt has been a mess.4/5(32).
