    Didn t quite present to me much that was groundbreaking to affect my thoughts on the play itself, but this critical essay is worthwhile for its tracing of Beckett s development as a writer, its global picture of the reactions to and influence of Waiting for Godot, and the clear and insightful way Graver explores Beckett s themes and intentions in this play in the context of his literary life which seems almost to attempt escape from itself.


  2. Edlira Dibrani Edlira Dibrani says:

    Waiting for Godot, then, is a play not about Godot who he is or whether he will ever arrive but about waiting or, to beprecise, about what people do while they wait In this regard, Beckett s French title, En attendant Godot, While Waiting for Godot, is aprecise rendering than the title he gave to his English translation.


  3. William Guerrand William Guerrand says:

    Intelligent analysis of the infamous Waiting For Godot This is a great read if you re interested in knowingabout the play Reading a full version is however much recommended as not everything in this analysis is covered.

    I read this directly after reading Waiting for Godot so that I could immediately recall parts of the play, and I will be reading the play again right away so that I can apply so much of what I ve learned.Personally, I gained the most out of the first half of the book The Genesis and Reception was fascinating, and putting myself in Beckett s time brought a lot to my understanding of the play s brilliance Chapter Two, Approaching the Play, was what I was looking for, ain depth, structured I read this directly after reading Waiting for Godot so that I could immediately recall parts of the play, and I will be reading the play again right away so that I can apply so much of what I ve learned.Personally, I gained the most out of the first half of the book The Genesis and Reception was fascinating, and putting myself in Beckett s time brought a lot to my understanding of the play s brilliance Chapter Two, Approaching the Play, was what I was looking for, ain depth, structured study of Waiting for Godot Which I might re read, actually The second half of the book, although not was I went searching for, was surprisingly fascinating as I learnedabout the French and English differences His Directing changed when the play went to stage, and the humour is altered, perhaps darker in the English version I also need to brush up on my French.The last part of the book covers words and playwrights that were influenced by Godot and Beckett s work In fact, you could base a whole course around the following plays and how they were inspired by Beckett.Not considered a light read for the average person, if you really want to dig your teeth into Waiting for Godot, this book is the perfect companion

    A decent read I think it speaks to a specific audience that I am not anywhere close to Somewhat reminded me of Of Mice and Men


  6. Elijah Elijah says:

    Literature of the absurd at it s finest What is the purpose of life Why are we here Why, we are waiting for Godot


  7. John Devlin John Devlin says:

    Two bums talk barely lucidly about nothing Oh but wait, it s really deep.


  8. Hari Hari says:

    not as good as Waiting for Guffman


  9. Christopher Christopher says:

    Classic, absurd, a great read But its one of the classics of modern theater, so I don t feel the need to say anything else.
