Product Description

Book Description

Krapp's Last Tape and Other Shorter Plays by Samuel Beckett, published as part of the eightieth Anniversary of Faber, as part of a landmark publishing project to publish edited and corrected texts of all of his works.

About the Author

Samuel Beckett was born in Dublin in 1906. He was educated at Portora Royal School and Trinity College, Dublin, where he graduated in 1927. His made his poetry debut in 1930 with Whoroscope and followed it with essays and two novels before World War Two. He wrote one of his most famous plays, Waiting for Godot, in 1949 but it wasn't published in English until 1954. Waiting for Godot brought Beckett international fame and firmly established him as a leading figure in the Theatre of the Absurd. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1961. Beckett continued to write prolifically for radio, TV and the theatre until his death in 1989.

Beckett is an undisputed genius but I never got to read him for pleasure, I only ever read him for lectures. But I think this worked in my favour. To fully appreciate Beckett (at least for you) I think several people's input and analysis is needed. Waiting For Godot is hilarious and his more revered play, but Not I and Krapp's Last Tape are genius is ore abstract ways. Not I is a tough read, but visually it is stunning. Having not been lucky enough to see the play in person I have seen a video of the event, and my god is it unnerving! The mentally unstable protagonist's mouth is the only thing visible on-stage, and it speaks at the speed of light. The written manuscript makes little sense, as does the live version. But with the live version one can gauge the more psychotic side of the piece. Oh my goodness, it is one of a kind and I highly doubt anything of such a high artistic calibre can ever be produced like that again! If you get the chance to see it live, please do, it is wonderful.

As a second hand book it came with minor notes inside the text, but was overall good quality with little wear.

As the title suggests, no problems at all here, a fine service. A complimentary bookmark to boot. Would definitely use them again, thank you.

I haven't actually read this - but I saw the play last night. I was actually moved to post a review, due to how very AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL it was. Incredible. I was forced to drink too much wine and listen to my boyfriend's snores all the way through. DO NOT BUY.
