Eeyore and Samuel Beckett

‘”No Give and Take,” Eeyore went on. “No Exchange of Thought. ‘HalloWhat‘ – I mean, it gets you nowhere, particularly if the other person’s tail is only just in sight for the second half of the conversation”‘ (p. 147)

House at Pooh Corner (1928) A. A. Milne

Is Eeyore actually a character visiting, or on loan, from a Samuel Beckett text? Waiting for Eeyore, perhaps, or Eeyore’s Last Tape, or even Not Eeyore, starring only his mouth.

About ejpollard

I was awarded my PhD from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK in December 2013. My thesis explored the notions of origin and ellipsis in the writing of contemporary British novelist Hilary Mantel. I want this blog to express the ideas I have in and around my academic writing. View all posts by ejpollard
