256). Pour reprendre et rejoindre nos premiers propos concernant la nouvelle subjectivité qu’incarne la trilogie, l’espace de l’entre-deux des langues peut se comprendre comme un espace de répétition et de réinscription, espace d’une double articulation. Autrement dit, le narrateur/traducteur beckettien dans la trilogie est obligé de réinstaurer et de répéter les événements qu’il a relatés dans la version originale. Le discours romanesque de la trilogie, étant écrit en français, apparaît comme la double articulation d’une nouvelle position (par rapport aux romans beckettiens de l’avant-guerre) et d’une nouvelle relation entre le Moi et autrui: les fantasmes qui sous-tendent presque chaque page de la trilogie sont l’effet d’un réinvestissement des fantaisies subjectives, laissant au narrateur la possibilité d’un nouveau départ, ou comme Leslie Hill nous le rappelle, favorisant les conditions d’une « distance productive et créatrice »: What the shift into French achieves for Beckett, is, more broadly, the creation of productive distance or difference between his writing and the stresses at work in Watt.
