“The confusion is not my invention..”

A short, but interesting, article in the Guardian today by writer Brigitte Le Juez on the publication of her book – Beckett before Beckett. And it begins with a great quote from the man himself.

In 1961 an American academic, Tom Driver, quizzed Samuel Beckett about the confusion he found in his writing. Beckett replied: “The confusion is not my invention … It is all around us and our only chance now is to let it in. The only chance of renovation is to open our eyes and see the mess. It is not a mess you can make sense of.”
