The Theatrical Notebooks: Waiting for Godot

Samuel Beckett

Waiting for Godot joins Endgame, Krapp’s Last Tape and the Shorter Plays in this highly praised series of Beckett’s notebooks, which show for the first time the extensive revisions made by Beckett during revivals of the play.

This volume is in part a facsimile, with transcription and commentary, of the notebook kept by Beckett for Berlin’s Schiller-Theater production in 1975. It contains a full set of directorial notes, and discloses, section by section, a total system that works by repetition and analogy, musical rhythm and echo, establishing subtle patterns of sound, movement and gestures.
