Wacky, bizarre and very entertaining! 10. September 2007
Von ••·.·•• RIZZO ••·.·•• - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It's clear to see why Buried Child won the 78-79 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play borders on theatre of the absurd with it's illogical circumstances, and bizarre plot. We learn soon that a baby was buried, but we are entertained as the story processes and unfolds through the eyes of this dysfunctional family. The conflict is between the need to reveal the truth, and refusal to speak about the truth. A visitor to the home causes the revealing of the truth.

Dodge is a sickly 70ish year old drinker, smoker and frequently has violent coughing outbursts. Married to Halie, 65 year old, they have 3 boys. Halie spends time (tipsy time) with the church Father.

Tilden, the oldest, shows up after 20 years, spent time in jail and got run out of New Mexico. Tilden was an All-American quarterback or fullback, the family can't remember which. Now he is mixed up in the head and can't take care of himself.

Bradley, they determine isn't very bright; he chopped his leg with a chainsaw. Bradley has serious conflict with Dodge.

And Ansel, the soldier who died in a motel, on his honeymoon with the Catholic Italian girl, the mob. Haley swears he was doomed when he married her. Ansel played basketball and could have made money, could have taken care of Dodge and Halie.

Father Dewis just tries to mediate. For Halie, he would erect a statue of Ansel with a rifle in one hand and a basketball in the other.

Vince, the grandson, Tilden's son arrives after 6 years and nobody recognizes him. He is symbolic of the buried unwanted child.

Shelly, Vince's girlfriend is thrust into this bizarre scenario, and it is she who becomes the focus of the unveiling truth of the child.

The most prominent symbolism in Buried Child is the rain, and how the vegetables in the field have grown. The rain is mentioned a lot, and it serves to be the nuturing of the vegetables, like nuturing the family for the truth.

This play is brilliant, engaging, and very entertaining. The dialogue is real, paces well and there are a few lengthy monologues. Like good literature, it requires a second reading. Don't skip that.......Rizzo

A 15. Juni 2009
Von Lauren Magnussen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
With enough symbolism to keep a literary student happily busy for weeks, Sam Shepard's Pulitzer Prize-winning play throws you into a surreal world grounded in the decay of the American Dream. The family centered in the drama is dysfunctional, to put it mildly, and is a microcosm of the hopes and eventual destruction of those hopes in America. The action plays out like a combination between American Gothic and Frida Kahlo - based in reality, but little bits here and there remind the audience that they are not in a world structured realistically. Shepard has stunning skills in the way he paints pictures with words. The only gripe is that the motivations of Halie, the matriarch of the family, are never fully developed or explained. Perhaps Shepard's intention was to keep emotions and feelings as buried as the title implies.

Real and Unreal 30. Januar 2000
Von Susan R Murray - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Buried Child is a story of coming home and coming to terms with the past. Sheppard's use of visual imagery and his mastery of simple, stark, but powerful dialog make this one of the better modern American plays. 5 men, 2 women, one set.
Dysfunctional, maybe? 11. Mai 2015
Von Duane M. Timm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Dysfunctional, maybe? I had tickets to see the play and I read a review that said it bordered on absurd! I thought, "Perhaps I should read the play first so I understand what is going on. Plus I have a hearing problem and I did not want to miss any dialog. The book was enlightening. The play did not leave anything out, it followed the book very closely. However, the play descriptions, asides, and directions add a lot to one's understanding.

What fun. Sam Shepard writes very well and it is a quick read. But, the enjoyment is discussing with others the "why's" and the "What would happen if's" with friends who have also read or seen the play.

It can be very serious, it can also make you chuckle at times. It is far too complicated to try to explain. But you feel like a fly on the wall witnessing all these events! Shepard brings you inside the home and lets you get acquainted, then he allows you to draw your own conclusions.

Wouldn't it be fun to see him in his own play?
