Maurice Nadeau, in a brief review of Malone Meurt in the Mercure de France (March 1952, pp. 503-4) notes that, in this novel, Beckett continues his search for an indefinable “inner being” employing a “very concrete and explosive, even merry” “metaphysics” that “moves in an absolute nihilism.” Like other critics, Nadeau offers that after this, “silence” will be the only voice left to Beckett.
