This chapter studies the issue of visibility, which is considered central to both Beckett and intertextuality. It introduces The Lost Ones, a text that alternates between claiming to be the recording of a visual experience and the creation of a fiction that is based on ‘notions’. It shows that this text uses the last lines of Dante's Comedy to question, through Dante, the very process of the construction of fictional spaces and of ways out.
