Beckett and the Subject: Three Quotes

"We are disappointed at the nullity of what we are pleased to call attainment. But what is attainment: The identification of the subject with the object of his desire. The subject has died–and perhaps many times–on the way"
(Proust)

"The words too, slow, slow, the subject dies before it comes to the verb.’ (Texts for Nothing)

"In the meantime no sense in bickering about pronouns and other parts of blather. The subject doesn't matter, there is none." (The Unnameable).
