By Samuel Beckett
From an inauspicious starting on the tiny Left financial institution Theatre de Babylone in 1953, by way of bewilderment between American and British audiences, Waiting for Godot has turn into of crucial and enigmatic performs of the earlier fifty years and a cornerstone of twentieth-century drama. As Clive Barnes wrote, “Time catches up with genius … Waiting for Godot is likely one of the masterpieces of the century.”
The tale revolves round probably homeless males looking forward to someone—or something—named Godot. Vladimir and Estragon wait close to a tree, inhabiting a drama spun in their personal recognition. the result's a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes, and nonsense, which has been interpreted as mankind’s inexhaustible look for which means. Beckett’s language pioneered an expressionistic minimalism that captured the existential post-World struggle II Europe. His play is still the most magical and lovely allegories of our time.
