    It s unfortunate to see reviews of Beckett contain so many cliches Defining his work by existenial or absurd whether in a positive or negative context is as reductive as defining Faulkner s works as Southern or Dostoyevski s as psychological Beckett strived to create original works that reflected his preoccupation with complex ideas of philosophers Descartes and schopenhauer and psychology Young and Freud He also belonged to the liteary generation like Eliot and Joyce that wrote It s unfortunate to see reviews of Beckett contain so many cliches Defining his work by existenial or absurd whether in a positive or negative context is as reductive as defining Faulkner s works as Southern or Dostoyevski s as psychological Beckett strived to create original works that reflected his preoccupation ...

    All life long, the same questions, the same answers.I read this in a hospital This morning The patient was someone I don t know very well It was thought that my presence would afford authority I am not sure about that The senseless ritual of life is unveiled in a drab flourish by Beckett I love it This isn t is powerful as Go...

    The set of Endgame resembles a skull, with two high windows on the left and right This is a play about hell hell in the head as well as that state that might be awaiting us.Everything is grey There is no colour anywhere At centre stage sits Hamm, in a chair on casters, with a bloodied handkerchief covering his dead At left, two garbage cans covered with an old sheet Clov stands at the right, next to a door A picture hangs on the wall, face to the wall The garbage cans contain Hamm s pare The set of Endgame resembles a skull, with two high windows on the left and right This is a play about hell hell in the head as well as that state that might be awaiting us.Everything is grey There is no colour anywhere At centre stage sits Hamm, in a chair on casters, with a bloodied handkerchief covering his dead At left, two garbage cans covered with an old sheet Clov stands at the right, next to a door A picture hangs on the wall, face to the wall The garbage cans contain Hamm s parents, Nagg and Nell, legless and helpless Nell dies about two thirds of the way through the play Clov is Hamm s servant, and there is constant tension between the two of them as Clov wants to leave but cannot There is no yesterday or tomorrow, as they are all locked into an eternal now, although they all refer to wistful memories.T...

    Much has been said about Endgame and the existing literature has almost exhausted its interpretive capacity But for me, Act Without Words is a far grater work in its brevity and universality I loved its each and every moment quite epiphanical It dramatizes the way in which we, as human beings, are trapped by elemental workings of life and how nature creates mirages of desire and fulfillment only to leave us frustrated and unsatisfied The moment ...

    Endgame feels, in many ways, like the same play as Waiting for Godot Both plays use the same pair of, respectively, clever and dim witted primary characters Vladimir and Estragon in Godot, and Hamm and Clov in Endgame presented in a gray, macabre setting Knowing this makes it very easy to understand how Beckett structured these two plays, and how his character relations explicate themes cerebral discord allows extensive and recursive banter Personally, I didn t love the play I ve tried to Endgame feels, in many ways, like ...

    First read through pretty much nothing made sense It was a swirl of madness and confusion.Rereading it reveals layers and depth that elicits examination and interaction with Beckett s post modern themes of meaninglessness and disorder He makes references to The Waste Land, which I thought was interesting While Eliot ultimately reaches Christian conclusions, Endgame circles around nihilistic ideologies of nothingness.I love this play for what questions it sparks within me Reading it from a First read through pretty much nothing made sense It was a swirl of madness and confusion.Rereading it reveals layers and d...

    Brilliant poetry Embrace the pauses and sit in the work until it becomes uncomfortable That s the only way to truly enjoy Beckett.

    Last month, I read Samuel Beckett s Endgame 3 stars so I am just reviewing the second play included in this book, Act Without Words. I still liked it or it is a notch better than Endgame but not as good as Waiting for Godot 4 stars Although there is also the element of suicide here particularly the thought of it and the rebelliousness when the narrator did not move at the ending scene when the carafe or water was dangled within his reach right in front of him.If Waiting for Godot 4 stars Last month, I read Samuel Beckett s Endgame 3 stars so I am just reviewing the second play included in this book, Act Without Words.
