Et si Beckett n'avait dû sa consécration qu'à un malentendu si insistant que seule une révolution de sa lecture pouvait restituer los angeles révolution qu'il a accomplie. Il arrive en effet que l'interprétation obligée et autorisée d'un travail littéraire, relayée par les dévots de l. a. mystique poétique, occulte l'immensité d'une oeuvre et en inverse le sens. Beckett a introduit en littérature une subversion aussi radicale que celle de Duchamp en artwork : il a inventé l'art littéraire abstrait. Entreprise si attentatoire aux credos de l. a. «profondeur» qu'on n'a su appliquer à son oeuvre que l'idée l. a. plus rebattue de los angeles poésie qu'il avait passé sa vie à refuser : « Ah, les vieilles questions, les vieilles réponses, il n'y a que ça! » ironisait-il. Au terme d'une enquête qui réintroduit l'histoire (Goyce, Yeats, los angeles littérature et l'Irlande...) au sein de cette oeuvre réputée los angeles plus natural », voici le portrait inédit de l'artiste en « abstracteur», inventeur des règles spécifiques de l'abstraction littéraire; et un démontage de sa combinatoire logique qui donne l. a. clé des énigmes les plus obscures du Dépeupleur ou de Cap au pire. Comme dit Beckett : «Encore. Dire encore. Soit dit encore. Tant mal que pis encore. Jusqu'à plus mèche encore. Soit dit plus mèche encore.»

Forced to flee their countries’ former colonies, technical staffers who had gained expertise of place in these specific environments faced new challenges, particularly in redefining and using their specialized skills in new ecological, geographical, and political contexts.
