20 The psychological dynamism of Molloy’s quest is sustained by this anarchic rejection of maternal nurture which becomes the basis for questioning any human relationship and, on an hermeneutic level, Benjamin Keatinge 25 rendering doubtful the basis of communication, interpretation and enquiry themselves. Molloy’s rejection of maternal nurture entails a schizoid scrambling of the Oedipal paradigm of psychoanalysis. On the affective level, he tries to reject the imperatives of need and relationship, while on the hermeneutic and epistemological level, he rejects the possibility of understanding and knowledge.

And while Molloy does not return as a hero or anything like it, he does reach his mother’s room thanks to mysterious agencies and so the ostensible goal of his quest is achieved. Stanley Gontarski has usefully emphasised how Molloy as a novel both co-opts and subverts features of traditional narrative. ”7 This explains why Molloy feels both familiar and strange, both traditional and radically new. Beckett has used aspects of the quest narrative (which resonates through Western literature from medieval Romance through Chaucer and Spenser to Cervantes and beyond) alongside aspects of the detective novel (the archetype of which is the Oedipus figure in Sophoclean drama) as well as some elements of fairy or folk tales and he has come up with a radical collage of all these elements which rewrites even as it reiterates (in Gontarski’s phrase) the traditional novel.
