Reviews

"An impressively complete survey of the play in its cultural, theatrical, historical and political contexts." - David Bradby, co-editor of Contemporary Theatre Review Briefly reviewed in the Year's work in English Studies journal, vol 89, No. 1 'Its major strength is its exploration of the play's French origins, and especially the first production in Paris directed by Roger Blin.' This new introductory textbook is an extremely useful resource for both readers and performers of Beckett's Waiting for Godot. It provides some very interesting and readable biographical and historical background for the play, including some helpful analysis of genre and language.--Sanford Lakoff Briefly reviewed in the Year's work in English Studies journal, vol 89, No. 1A 'Its major strength is its exploration of the play's French origins, and especially the first production in Paris directed by Roger Blin.'
