No Endon sight
Murphy’s misrecognition of love
in Samuel Beckett and the primacy of love

This chapter examines the centrality of the initial experiences of the development of a secure inner world. It shows that these experiences allow the self to involve others in a productive and living fashion. It explains how Murphy's fantasy of mind demonstrates his feeling of not being a part of a secure and loving world. It then determines how his regressive, despairing retreat was triggered. Finally, the chapter discusses Murphy's last days and his most important attempt to connect to a maternal figure in the guise of Mr. Endon, a psychiatric patient.
