    Since I do not have the text to hand, I cannot check context. Read the whole passage and apply logic.

    That is the scene where is sleeping in a chair, speaking in his sleep. "I can't do it!" That means just what it says. But we as readers (and those who hear him) don't know what he means. In fact, he himself might not know. It was clearly a dream.

    It is a mystery. We have to read on to find out.

    Happy reading....
