What a piece Beautiful Great edition North Star Line. One night as he sat at his table head on hands, he saw himself rise and go Stirrings Still is the last piece of sustained writing Beckett did before his death in 1989 As the title implies, he still, even after the apparent finality of Worstward Ho , has some last something to express He seems to be expressing that final moment of separation, of letting go, just before the final oblivion is attained.What is remarkable is that , after the compressed stream of consciousness of Worstward Ho , he has turned to a simple third person limited point of view, and has crafted this final piece with some of the most beautiful prose he has ever written Stirrings Still is a lovely, minor key coda to an extraordinary body of work. Even toward the end Beckett s work shows the impossibility of knowing, of knowing the present and, even toward the end, what it s about to be left behind.
