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 one 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 mankinds inexhaustible search for meaning. Becketts 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.

While I have tried my best, there is no guarantee that the data shown on this site (book prices or postage) are accurate. Always check the prices and postage on the web site before making any purchase. Please also note that including a site in the search result does not indicate any endorsement by this site or its owner. I may not have ever brought a book from them. But no-one ever reads the small print, so I'm probably the only one who knows this.
