Summary
"The obsessive narrator, who opens the novel asking, "Where now? Who now? When now?" is a disembodied person, living in a large jar in a restaurant window in Paris. Essentially "unnameable," the narrator is referred to as Mahood, Worm, and Basil, in a series of tales. The final sentence in the novel is a long dramatic monologue. The narrator concludes with the desire to continue living despite an inescapable sense of anguish and entropy: "I can't go on, I'll go on." " (Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature, accessed online 11/14/2019)
