Waiting for Godot Book Description :

From an inauspicious beginning at the tiny Left Bank Theatre de Babylone in 1953, followed by bewilderment among American and British audiences, "Waiting for Godot" has become one of the most important and enigmatic plays of the past fifty years and a cornerstone of twentieth-century drama. As Clive Barnes wrote, "Time catches up with genius. . . . "Waiting for Godot" is one of the masterpieces of the century." The story revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone--or something--named Godot. Vladimir and Estragon wait near a tree, inhabiting a drama spun of their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes, and nonsense, which has been interpreted as mankind's inexhaustible search for meaning. Beckett's language pioneered an expressionistic minimalism that captured the existential post- World War II Europe. His play remains one of the most magical and beautiful allegories of our time.

Samuel Beckett s Endgame Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, University of Regensburg (Institut fur Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Proseminar: From Modernism to Postmodernism, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This peace of work deals with the question, whether Beckett's "Endgame" is a continuation of "Waiting for Godot." In order to answer it, both plays will be compared to work out similarities as well as differences. Godot will function as a basis and startingpoint for interpretation, that will then turn towards Endgame for comparison to come to a conclusion. Main features of the drama such as plot, setting, characters, action, language and time will be involved in this procedure of analysis. To a certain extent, this approach towards the two plays will also be related to the historical context of Postmodernism and the philosophical background of Existentialism, as well as to characteristics of the Theatre of the Absurd or the Expressionist Theatre."

Waiting for Godot follows Endgame and Krapp's Last Tape in this highly praised series of Beckett's notebooks, which show for the first time the extensive revisions made by Beckett during revivals of the play. This volume is in part a facsimile, with transcription and commentary, of the notebook kept by Beckett for Berlin's Schiller-Theater production in 1975. It contains a full set of directorial notes, and discloses, section by section, a total system that works by repetition and analogy, musical rhythm and echo, establishing subtle patterns of sound, movement and gestures.

Samuel Beckett s Waiting for Godot Book Description :

"An impressively complete survey of the play in its cultural, theatrical, historical and political contexts." - David Bradby, co-editor of Contemporary Theatre Review Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot is not only an indisputably important and influential dramatic text -it is also one of the most significant western cultural landmarks of the twentieth century. Originally written in French, the play first amazed and appalled Parisian theatre-goers and critics before receiving a harshly dismissive initial critical response in Britain in 1955. Its influence since then on the international stage has been significant, impacting on generations of actors, directors and audiences.

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett Book Analysis Book Description :

Unlock the more straightforward side of Waiting for Godot with this concise and insightful summary and analysis! This engaging summary presents an analysis of Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett, a play which follows a pair of tramps over two days of their lives as they wait for a mysterious man called Godot. Nothing else really happens, and that is exactly the point of play: through the somewhat ridiculous protagonists and the complete lack of action in Waiting for Godot, Beckett points out that life itself has no meaning, and we spend most of it waiting for something – or someone – to come along and change this. Premiered in Paris in 1953, Waiting for Godot met with astonishing success, and has since been the subject of various different interpretations and even been voted “most significant English language play of the 20th century” according to a poll conducted by the British Royal National Theatre. Although Beckett wrote the French version of his play before its English counterpart, he was actually born in Ireland. He spent most of his life in Paris, and is regarded as one of the most prominent writers of the 20th century, as well as one of the most important dramatists of the Theatre of the Absurd.
