[W]e must begin with the beauty in the prose. It is this beauty that tells us what it is that Beckett wishes to save. This is because the destiny of beauty, and in particular of the beauty that Beckett aims at, is to separate. To separate appearance, which it both restores and obliterates, from the universal core of experience. It is indispensable to take Beckett at his word: the word of beauty. In this separating action, the word declares what we must disregard in order to face up to what may be of worth.
— Alain Badiou, On Beckett
