12 I have deliberately avoided reading too much Yeats into Beckett’s first ventures into theater, though the temptation to do so should not go unremarked. Asked about the influence of Irish playwriting on his work, Beckett would admit to only Synge. ’13 Nevertheless, the father–son endgame that plays itself out in Purgatory can emerge as a stunning parallel when featured on a double-bill with Beckett’s second published play, just as the girl with green eyes celebrated and eulogized by the seedy old drunk in Krapp’s Last Tape echoes the familiar trope of a love long lost that brings so much fire to the mature Yeats repertory, the poems Beckett grew to admire.

Three years later, Beckett published the epic text, Comment c’est (How It Is), a work whose 825 white gaps are the generative void of Barker and Wolosky, the mud out of which creation comes, irresistibly (see also Abbott 95–108). Gaps abound in Beckett’s many later works, some of them available to both readings, narrative 25 but free of the kind of retrospective worrying that Beckett expended on the egregious narrative gaps of his postwar art. Rediscovered miraculously after what absence in perfect voids .
