Samuel Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature n 1969; his literary output of plays, novels, stories and poetry has earned him an uncontested place as one of the greatest writers of our time. "Endgame, " originally written in French and translated into English by Beckett himself, is considered by many critics to be his greatest single work. A pinnacle of Beckett's characteristic raw minimalism, it is a pure and devastating distillation of the human essence in the face of approaching death.

Review: Endgame & Act Without Words

User Review  - Otto - Goodreads

A bit too meta and sparse to work well without seeing it performed. Went over my head a bit too. That being said, Samuel Beckett has a very strong understanding of the game of the scene. Read full review
