It is well known that Beckett was a perfectionist when it came to his writing. While there are "no symbols where none intended" (Watt) you cannot ignore anything in the Beckettian canon, despite the fact that it is all too easy to be led down the rabbit hole. There are many personal connections between Beckett and his texts, with both explicit and more oblique references made to his life and experiences. These may be mere literary devices and/or red herrings, but I believe that Beckett (at least partially) inserted and indeed translated so much of himself into his texts for an important reason.
