Fragmentariness, or various fragmentary structures, narrative and dramatic alike, can be considered as one tenet of Beckett’s oeuvre, especially of his later works.  However, what do we mean when we describe his works in this fashion? What is, for example, the fragmentary narrative of The Unnamable or The Lost Ones?  Can we even speak of narrative in the first place, or do we, perhaps, need a redefinition of narrative?
