5.0 out of 5 stars Beckett complete dramas.
If you are new to the works of Samuel Beckett then this is the best place to start in my opinion. There is nothing I can add which hasn't already been said about these dramas, only that they are quite short and moderately accessible but almost inexhaustable in their complexity. To describe these works as 'existentialist' really doesn't do them justice or decribe their...

1.0 out of 5 stars Dear Faber & Faber...
... What happened?
You had the good idea of bringing together all the dramatic works of this brilliant author. You are generally able to produce a solid, tight paperback book (see the FF poetry volumes, for instance). What on earth possessed you to produce precisely this important and useful in edition in such an appallingly low quality? It is downright laughable,...

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent collection, 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Dramatic Works of Samuel Beckett (Paperback)
It shows exactly how Beckett used to work and - due to the fact that I also have the "Beckett on Film" DVD - I could use it as the basis to learn more about Beckett and his view of things which is great. Very impressive.

This surpassed expectations. The book was polythene wrapped in a secure, bubble wrap envelope, promptly, and I am relishing it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great plays - shame about the book, 31 Aug 2010

This review is from: The Complete Dramatic Works of Samuel Beckett (Paperback)
Beckett's plays are, for me, the best ever written. They sum up the whole of humanity in increasingly fewer words until we are made to feel simultaneously the most important and redundant creatures in the universe. This edition, though, was poorly bound and within seconds of receiving it the pages were falling out. If you get a good copy, you will love these and re-read them forever; but make sure your copy is complete.
