This chapter discusses the subsequent decomposition of the work presented in Chapter 8, following the work's regress from large to small. It closes with Beckett's last text, Comment dire/what is the word, a deliberately unfinished attempt to write a single sentence. Beckett also draws attention to the creative potential of decomposition by means of a small change to a key motto: memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris.

Keywords:   decomposition, work, regress, Beckett, creative potential, change, key motto, last text
