Beckett’s Try Again

Samuel Beckett has once stated “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” Published within his “Worstward Ho!” novel, Beckett urges reader to continue to not not give up readily, but continuously make efforts. Beckett does not specify why to to keep trying. However, it is safe to assume that he is sending an underlying message that he wants readers to learn from mistakes, become stronger, and push forward. The way Beckett sends the message is very interesting and it seems as though he is asking someone. If he took the DC IC approach, Beckett’s statement would not have the same effect. The conversation approach Beckett took seems as though he is trying to be a friend. A friend will encourage you to keep pushing forward.
