Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett Summary

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 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.

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett Summary

A seminal work of twentieth-century drama, Waiting for Godot was Samuel Beckett's first professionally produced play. It opened in Paris in 1953 at the tiny Left Bank Theatre de Babylone, and has since become a cornerstone of twentieth-century theater. The story line revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone--or something--named Godot. Vladimir and Estragon wait near a tree on a barren stretch of road, inhabiting a drama spun from their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes, and nonsense, which has been interpreted as a somber summation of mankind's inexhaustible search for meaning. Beckett's language pioneered an expressionistic minimalism that captured the existentialism of post-World War II Europe. His play remains one of the most magical and beautiful allegories of our time.

Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot by Mark Taylor-Batty,Juliette Taylor-Batty Summary

"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: A Post-Structuralist Perspective by Javed Akhter Summary

This work interprets the text of the play Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett in a Post-Structuralist perspective to understand its complex relationships with the late modernist bourgeois ideology. In an effort to look for the signification of contradictions within the text of the play and its complex relationships to the late modernist bourgeois ideology, one can actually make a choice to unfold vigorous theoretical energies of the Post-Structuralist Althusserian Marxist theory of decentred text and Derridean Deconstructionism. The research based upon Post-Structuralist Althusserian Marxist and Derridean Deconstructive reading of "Waiting for Godot" is new, innovative and useful interpretation for readers and scholars on the subject in many respects. However, it concludes that the text's conflict and disparity of its meanings reveals its unspoken portions or the non-saids which the late modernist bourgeois ideology has suppressed in its own way. Therefore, the difference, conflict and contradiction of text's final meanings are flux, contradictions, silences, absences and unspoken portions of the text, which show its complex relationship to the bourgeois ideology.
