    The life of Irish novelist, poet, and playwright Samuel Beckett is profiled in this two-part documentary: from his Dublin childhood, to his days in Paris, associating with Picasso and Chagall, to old age. Excerpts from a performance of the semiautobiographical Krapp’s Last Tape and previously unpublished letters tell the story, along with the remembrances of Beckett’s lifelong friend and publisher, Jerome Lindon, relatives, and others who knew him. This is a rare glimpse into the reclusive world of this literary giant, whose most famous work, Waiting for Godot, evokes with unnerving precision the cosmic despair and isolation of modern humankind. »»﴿───► Check out the Samuel Beckett Playlist for more: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIZqvqbtz9I0h6vfuDAnRFNfQvvrrZRWi »»﴿───► See more...

  • Samuel Beckett reads from Watt

    The Nobel prize winner, Samuel Beckett (1906-1989) reads from one of his notable novels, Watt. From Poetry Foundation: The recordings were made in 1965 by Lawrence Harvey, professor of comparative literature at Dartmouth College, who traveled to Paris to meet with Beckett a number of times from 1961 to 1965 while researching his 1970 book Samuel Beckett, Poet and Critic. At one point during their discussions, Beckett recited several passages from his third but second-published novel, Watt. The book was written in English in the 1940s, mostly while Beckett was hiding from the Nazis in southern France. It's an experimental novel (Beckett called it an "exercise") about a seeker named Watt who journeys to the house of the enigmatic Mr. Knott and works for a time as his servant. "Watt" and "Kno...

  • Theatre and Language: Samuel Beckett, 'Waiting for Godot' - Professor Belinda Jack

    In depth analysis of the language tools in Samuel Beckett’s ‘Waiting for Godot’ and its numerous interpretations http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/theatre-and-language-samuel-beckett-waiting-for-godot Beckett's Waiting for Godot has been interpreted in myriad ways. Some claim it is a work that explores the bleak absurdism of human life. Others have argued that it is an allegory of various kinds. These will be explored, but also the question as to what is it about the play that lends itself to such diverse interpretations? Plays are more than language. Is it in the relationship between language and the other aspects of theatre craft that the most convincing interpretation of the play lies? The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham C...

Shortly after, the boy enters and once again tells Vladimir that Godot will not be coming. He insists that he did not speak to Vladimir yesterday. After he leaves, Estragon and Vladimir decide to leave, but again they do not move as the curtain falls, ending the play. Summary via SparkNotes.

De la mano de Rafael Pérez Gay, sumérgete en la vida y obra del mundialmente reconocido poeta, novelista y dramaturgo irlandés Samuel Beckett. Licenciado y doctor en lenguas romances por el “Trinity College de Dublín”, residió en París por un tiempo, siendo docente, hasta que por la guerra tuvo que huir de la Gestapo, policía Nazi, posteriormente en el Sur de Francia libre de la ocupación alemana logró escribir sus destacadas obras como, su trilogía “Molloy” (1951), “Malone muere” (1953) y “El innombrable” (1953) novelas que él consideraba sus más grandes logros. Su obra más conocida y aplaudida por la crítica es la obra de teatro “Esperando a Godot” (1952), el resto de sus obras fueron publicadas en francés, y éstas siempre se centraron en la angustia indisociable de la condición humana. Fue ganador al premio Nobel de Literatura en 1969, su influencia en los dramaturgos posteriores a él fue impresionante, sobre todo aquellos que siguieron su tradición en lo absurdo.

In depth analysis of the language tools in Samuel Beckett’s ‘Waiting for Godot’ and its numerous interpretations http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/theatre-and-language-samuel-beckett-waiting-for-godot Beckett's Waiting for Godot has been interpreted in myriad ways. Some claim it is a work that explores the bleak absurdism of human life. Others have argued that it is an allegory of various kinds. These will be explored, but also the question as to what is it about the play that lends itself to such diverse interpretations? Plays are more than language. Is it in the relationship between language and the other aspects of theatre craft that the most convincing interpretation of the play lies? The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/theatre-and-language-samuel-beckett-waiting-for-godot Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
