Summary (From the publisher):

Worstward Ho is not only a depiction of life coming into being, but a reinvention of language. In short abbreviated sentences Beckett encloses the wonder and the pain of life in a cosmic vision of space, inner and outer, that in its very auidacity and poetic intensity must make it one of the major works of twentieth-century literature. Some of its phrases have already become catchwords that are widely quoted.
