How it is by Samuel Beckett( Book )

"The theme may be the struggle of form to emerge from formlessness using Leopardi's sense of the world as mud (E fango è il mondo) and therefore, a kind of purgatory, as well as Dante's image of souls gulping mud in the Stygian marsh of the Inferno (Canto VII, 109-126, in Palma's translation): "Set in the slime, they say: 'We were sullen, with no pleasure in the sweet, sun-gladdened air, carrying in our souls the fumes of sloth. Now we are sullen in this black ooze' - where they hymn this in their throats with a gurgling sound because they cannot form the words down there." Dante's Belacqua and his foetal position also are referenced in How It Is and the following quotation is an example of the work's unpunctuated, dense, and poetic style: "the knees drawn up the back bent in a hoop the tiny head near the knees curled round the sack Belacqua fallen over on his side tired of waiting forgotten of the hearts where grace abides asleep." -- Wikipedia

Molloy : a novel by Samuel Beckett( Book )

A novel consisting of two meandering, plotless, stream-of-consciousness monologues, one by Molloy, a bedridden vagrant obsessed with finding his mother, and the other by Moran, a private detective who is assigned to find Molloy. Some view the work as a modernistic and experimental excursion into meaninglessness. Both the characters have a similar appearance, similar attitudes, and seem to be seriously mentally disturbed. Some critics argue both are the same person

Saposcat, the Lambert family, Macmann and his nurse Moll. Other figures weave in and out of his vision and his imagination"--Publisher's web site
