Book Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,0, Humboldt-University of Berlin (Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Innovative Twentieth-Century Theatre, language: English, abstract: In what way does Samuel Beckett create absurdity in his play "Waiting for Godot" and what is it that makes the "game" with the absurdity so unique and therefore Samuel Beckett's play to one of the most authentic representatives of the "Theatre of the Absurd"? Samuel Beckett was born in 1906 in Dublin and died in 1989 in Paris. He was an Anglo-Irish author and wrote in French as well as in English. Furthermore, he wrote poems and novels and worked as a theatre director. Samuel Beckett is considered the master of absurdity. (cf. Schwanitz 323) The central theme in his works is the meaninglessness of the human existence. (cf. Wunderlich) He was friends with James Joyce and was impressed by Joyce's "stream of consciousness" - a special literary method that James Joyce used. The idea of the "stream of consciousness" is an on-going process of associating things, i.e. the idea of getting inside into the uncontrolled process of thinking of a person. Waiting for Godot (1954) is Beckett's translation of his own original French version that is called "En attendant Godot" (1952). In 1969 he received the Nobel Price for Literature, but he did not accept the price because people thought "Waiting for Godot" would be a potential religious play. According to Beckett that was wrong and that is why he decided to refuse the price. Finally, Samuel Beckett was the most unique, singular writer in English/French since 1945.

Book Summary:

Subtitled 'A tragicomedy in two Acts', and famously described by the Irish critic Vivien Mercier as a play in which 'nothing happens, twice', En attendant Godot was first performed at the Théâtre de Babylone in Paris in 1953. It was translated into English by Samuel Beckett, and Waiting for Godot opened at the Arts Theatre in London in 1955. 'Go and see Waiting for Godot. At the worst you will discover a curiosity, a four-leaved clover, a black tulip; at the best something that will securely lodge in a corner of your mind for as long as you live.' Harold Hobson, 7 August 1955 'I told him that if by Godot I had meant God I would have said God, and not Godot. This seemed to disappoint him greatly.' Samuel Beckett, 1955
