The Unusual Narrator’s Threshold Position in the Secret Agent Society of Samuel Beckett’s The Unnamable

Mohammadreza Arghiani


The current study covers topics ranging across The Unnamable’s narrative, its unusual narrative methodology, its use of storytelling and sense making, and also in an interdisciplinary manner focuses on post-modern philosophy. It positions The Unnamable’s narrative largely at the doorstep of both deconstructive and constructive paradigms and via this approach aims to explore the potential of narrative and narrator in conveying different tacit understandings. This study will be suited for readers because it provides special form of discourse for perceiving the implications of narrator’s experience and also textual analysis. In this regard, the study underlines subjects such as unusual narrator’s threshold position, narrator’s lingual games, predetermined principles and also the concept of panopticon in the Secret Agent Society of the narrative.
