Samuel Beckett's 'Endgame': The Continuation of 'Waiting for Godot'?
GRIN Verlag, 2007 - 44 pages
Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, University of Regensburg (Institut fur Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Proseminar: From Modernism to Postmodernism, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This peace of work deals with the question, whether Beckett's "Endgame" is a continuation of "Waiting for Godot." In order to answer it, both plays will be compared to work out similarities as well as differences. Godot will function as a basis and startingpoint for interpretation, that will then turn towards Endgame for comparison to come to a conclusion. Main features of the drama such as plot, setting, characters, action, language and time will be involved in this procedure of analysis. To a certain extent, this approach towards the two plays will also be related to the historical context of Postmodernism and the philosophical background of Existentialism, as well as to characteristics of the Theatre of the Absurd or the Expressionist Theatre."
