  1. Fin de partie Endgame a play in one act, Samuel Beckett 1906 1989 Endgame, by Samuel Beckett, is a one act play with four characters It was originally written in French entitled Fin de partie Beckett himself translated it into English The play was first performed in a French language production at the Royal Court Theatre in London, opening on 3 April 1957 It is commonly considered, along with such works as Waiting for Godot, to be among Beckett s most important works Characters Hamm unable to st [...]

  2. Celebrity Death Match Special Endgame versus Secrets of Pawnless Endings An almost bare stage containing only an armchair, a table and two garbage cans The armchair is covered in a heavy drape CLOV enters right, carrying a bag, and limps slowly towards the table When he reaches it, he pulls out a chessboard and set He places the board on the table and painstakingly arranges a few pieces on it, examining the position from different angles and adjusting the pieces accordingly Finally, he moves to [...]

  3. Nature has forgotten us There s no nature No nature You exaggerate In the vicinity But we breathe, we change We lose our hair, our teeth Our bloom Our ideals A play that reads like a poem written in a twisted dream No words Only silence is suitable after this one.

  4. The title is taken from that stage in chess wherein there are only few pieces so you cannot mate your opponent This is the second play written by Samuel Beckett that I ve read It still felt very much like Waiting for Godot 3 stars with it absurdity, strangeness and at some point senselessness I have been reading the works of Samuel Beckett so I am used to his style and because of it, I still liked this play of his.Unlike Godot however, I had to read the existing reviews of my friends here on bec [...]

  5. My youngest daughter took me to see this during the week We had our first beer together prior to the performance in a pub a highly significant moment for a father, obviously, especially here in the land of Oz, the land of the amber fluid.Then a minute ago I read the Wiki article on this play I wanted to be sure it was written post WW2 You see, it is so obviously a post nuclear war play that I would have been very disappointed if it had been written in 1922 or something You know, the way TSE s li [...]

  6. L se em pouco mais de uma hora, mas fica colado pele um dia, uma semana, uma vida Beckett n o se esquece Assim como n o se esquece a inquieta o que as suas pe as provocam a confus o de sentimentos, o vazio, a ang stia porque leva nos ao limite, faz nos rir e sabemos que n o era para rir, era para chorar, caramba Era para gritar Foi a pe a mais sombria que li de Samuel Beckett, agora, apanhar os cacos e tentar restaurar a ru na emocional.

  7. Looks bad in print Perhaps up on the stage it functions as it should, as bizarro entertainment The stuff is emblematic, yet I cannot help but place him in the company of Lewis Carol in his overenthusiastic use of randomness, meaninglessness, senseless unseriousness Makes me think that the play is an experiment that s just altogether useless.

  8. I read this in English, for my British Lit class this semester I thought I should actually start reading the assignments, and I read this after reading The Power and the Glory and Regeneration My professor said this piece would be slow moving, and he said something about it not really have a plot, but I could see one if I squinted I actually really enjoyed this piece And because I took notes on it for my class, I have a lot to say One of the biggest things, is obviously that it represents a ches [...]

  9. An absurd masterpiece13 April 2014 One of the interesting things that I find about Beckett s plays is that he resists the temptation to offer any interpretation to what is going on within the play, or what the play is about In fact he seems to do completely the opposite in actually denying certain interpretations while not offering any reason as to what it is about For instance, when asked if Godot is supposed to be God, his response is no, and asking whether Endgame is set in a post apocalyptic [...]

  10. Unless it s Shakespeare, never read a play without some type of textual notes Having read Waiting for Godot and now Endgame , I m familiar with Samuel Beckett s minimalist approach He emphasizes silences, physical positions and stage props All of this is to say, Beckett is probably best translated to the plays as intended , but trekking through textual notes gave me a deep appreciation for this play The first time I read the play it took me under an hour, but I really didn t get it The second ti [...]

  11. HAMM We re not beginning to to mean something CLOV Mean something You and I, mean something Brief laugh Ah that s a good one Absurd theatre and existentialist lit isn t for everyone but I really enjoy it I couldn t tell you why, but something about the themes and the pointlessness of it all really appeals to me I know some people find the idea of Hamms parents living in Ash bins and Clov not being able to sit ect ect reallt stupid but something about that stupidity is charming to me Use your hea [...]

  12. Beckett directs Beckett Endgame Finale di partita youtu NsDc8R4rEWY Hamm unable to stand and blind Clov servant of Hamm unable to sit Nagg Hamm s father has no legs and lives in a dustbin Nell Hamm s mother has no legs and lives in a dustbin next to Nagg.whahahahaha

  13. As with so many of Samuel Beckett s plays, this one can leave the reader or viewer both entertained and bewildered Set in one room, it has only four characters Hamm, blind and unable to walk Clov, unable to sit Nell and Nagg, who have no legs and live side by side in ash cans It might be possible to view the play on one level as simply presenting a statement about existential despair, about the meaningless of life and the inevitability of death Yes, for each of us there are aspects of life that [...]

  14. One of Beckett s most famous and best plays Hamm and Clov are an unforgettable pair Hamm is a miserable person, confined to his chair, and somewhat accepting of his fate, slowly waiting for death the end to come But the end is slow in coming so why don t they continue to play this game, this game of life, this game of routines, of talking to each other, pretending to care etc Clov is Hamm s patient caretaker who generally has the patience of a saint, irrespective of the occasional emotional outb [...]

  15. This is my second time reading Samuel Beckett s play Endgame and I must say that I am a lot impressed with it this second go around I read it for a British Literature class last year and didn t get the point of it The play seemed to center on nothingness and the play had no discernible plot or development of characters After reading it again, I ve come to the conclusion that that is the point of the entire work Beckett has his characters argue endlessly and change their minds about what they ju [...]

  16. I read this in English at samuel beckett endgameml, glad that Beckett provided the translation himself of passing curiosity is that Wilde s Salome, another play translated by the author from the original French, lately impressed me also Spoilers of a sort may follow, but this is not the kind of work where these might be summarily unwelcome.This is a claustrophobic play, stark for all the clutter of its setting being in one act , and very effectively conveys a slow spiral towards the inevitabilit [...]

  17. when I see the rating for Endgame is 3.9 I lose my faith in the internet democracy of letters I mean, how can anyone not read this brilliant piece on the end of the world and not be entranced.But then I just looked up Waiting For Godot and it s rating 3.8, so any faith I have in the judgement of the masses is completely shattered.Beckett is memorable and funny He holds in his hands the bleeding black heart of our lives The characters of Endgame muse on the end of their existence or of our existe [...]

  18. It is my first book of Samuel Beckett, and I intended to read a thin one in order to get an idea of how remarkable the writer is since I have read a plenty of positive feedbacks about his writing styles from the literati Unfortunately, this one is soooo confusing to make out I cannot get at the sequence of the story the characters just seem to talk incessantly There are apparently two characters who seem to talk to one another philosophically then, another characters appear out of nowhere making [...]
