In this beautiful short text we are given a picture of a body crouched in a confined space, carefully described, a living tomb that is becoming a lifeless tomb.
The thoughts, anguish, prayers and memories are those so many suffer in this cruel world, but the picture we are given is universal and metaphorical, deeply moving and imbued with all the poetry of Beckettian prose.
