Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

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.

Beckett continued to write prolifically for radio, TV and the theatre until his death in 1989.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Student's Review of Endgame 9. Dezember 1999
Von Tasha
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm currently a student at a college in Baltimore Maryland. One of my assignments, given to me in my Intro. to Drama class, was to read the play "Endgame" ,by Samuel Beckett, that was found in my textbook. Overall, I thought that the play was different, well written and intriguing. The reason it was different to me was because of the way I pictured it in my head. With Nagg and Nell in the bins and Clov right beside Hamm and Hamm being pushed around the room made me image it incorrectly in my mind. I pictured a dark room in a basement of an old and cold castle with almost no light allowed to go in to the room. And with Hamm in the center of the room and Clov on one side of him and Nagg and Nell on his other. The way that the play is written is not the way I'm use too. I felt that the play went very fast. Yes I know that there were a lot of pauses in the dialog to break everything up, but it seem to flow quickly. I also think that it had to do with the conversations between Hamm and Clov. Samuel Beckett does not use a lot of tone changes in this play. Clov's voice seems not to change at all. his voice to me would sound old, tried, weak and overworked. As for Nagg and Nell their tone does not change during the whole play. I pictured their voices as very slow, calm, tried and weak. Hamm's tone does change during the play. It happens mostly when he is giving orders to Clov. Hamm's voice to me sounds sharp full of character, strong, wise and powerful. The play really intrigued me because I was wondering what the end would bring. I was a little bit confused on what was going to happening in the end of it all. Would Clov leave Hamm, would Hamm die, would the world end, does the sun come up and change things to the perfect ending I was hoping for. I guess I 'll never no the whole end to the play. I was very surprised about how much I really liked the "Endgame". And I plan to read more things by Samuel Beckett.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Endgame is an example of Horror Pornography 20. März 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
The personae in Endgame, 1957, indicate the real theme - the parents should be killed. Nell and Nagg, Hamm's parents, represent the final deflation of Beckett's Family romance fantasies. Once Beckett might have exalted his parents in childhood; now, he can only imagine grotesque parents. Appropriate to horror pornography [where the writer titillates the reader's love for sadism] Nell and Nagg are mutilated and defiled as garbage. Legless, they live in garbage cans begging for food. These legless pawns manifest Beckett's two impulses of rage: one, those who commit the primal scene are punished by mutilation aand debasement; two, symbolic of oral frustration, they receive oral frustration.Their son Hamm, whose name is oral, will not feed them. Critics enjoy Endgame because of the latent hatred of parental figures and the unconscious self-punishment of Hamm's blindness, like Oedipus, and his paralysis, the guilt for the hatred. One critic calls Endgame a "tone-poem", using adjectives that describe human ambivalence toward the primal scene: [it is] "alternately terrifying and uproarious, horrible and beautiful".
In truth, Endgame is a banal play about one family's failure.
Endgame has nothing new, nothing that Beckett had not written and rewritten . . . and rerewritten. Like Murphy or Arsene in Watt or Moran or Molloy or Malone or the Unnameable or the narrator of Stories For Nothing or Vladimir and Estragon or Winie in Happy Days, Clov and Hamm restate themes ad nauseum:
1. the hatred of life 2. the desire to die 3. the total lack of values in life 4. the statement that there has never been any happiness 5.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beckett at his maddening best 4. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I am no literary critic, but after reading Waiting for Godot, I sought more of his works. Beckett smashes everyday reality with a sledgehammer, wrecking the fantasy of social reality as we know it. The pointless circular conversations between Hamm and Clov are pathetic, useless, and point to the madness we engage in everyday, living in our own self created fantasies. We try to communicate with others , but in a sense we are only inflicting our own psychosis on each other, selfishly engaging in social ritual for some kind of perverse gratification. Of course this is only one take on life, only one way of viewing it. And like Elutheria and Godot, it is a dark vision. But to confront the deepest anxiety and emptiness within, a dark path is the only road to follow. Act Without Words is the first mime I have ever read. Seemingly simple, it also attempts to paint a picture of the futility and hoplessness of life, everything the mime reaches for he can never get, always tantilizingly out of reach. So with satisfaction and everything else in life it is always just over the horizon. Although others have interpreted this sense of need in other ways, sometimes more positively, Beckett shows it in an aweful light, leaving the reader with an empty yearning for something that can never be satisfied.

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
What the audience is met with is full-blown confusion. Thefirst scene opens with a brief tableau, a frozen frame depicting thetwo main character Clov and Hamm, the latter confined to a chair and the other dressed in shabby clothes, face expressionless, standing and looking into the audience. Beckett intends for the audience to be shocked and to be left unrestful. Beckett wrote Endgame to illustrate human suffering and the meaninglessness of routine. People who are not courageous enough to experience anything other than the monotony of life, people who lack any imagination and creativity. It is the extent of unfeelingness and total oblivion of emotions that detaches the characters in the play from what we may perceive as "realistic". On the first reading, one may be put off entirely by the repetitive questions and actions but with a closer second reading, the quality of Beckett's dramatic technique becomes palpable. Beckett's ingenuity of writing a play devoid of a plot shows that a dramamtist is not always bound to plot as most people assume. Anyway, here is a quote from the play to consider: "All life long the same questions, the same answers..........have you not have enough of this..this...this thing?"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hysterical but Absurd
This book was the ideal for me. It is so random and weird, it must be one of the funniest books I have ever read. People are too harsh on Beckett's style of writing.
