'One of the true masterpieces of the century.' -Clive Barnes, The New York Times
'One of the most noble and moving plays of our generation, a threnody of hope deceived and deferred but never extinguished; a play suffused with tenderness for the whole human perplexity; with phrases that come like a sharp stab of beauty and pain.'
- The Times (London)
'Beckett is an incomparable spellbinder. He writes with rhetoric and music that . . . make a poet green with envy.' -Stephen Spender
'Reading Beckett for the first time is an experience like no other in modern literature.'
'[Godot is ] among the most studied, monographed, celebrated and sent-up works of modern art, and perhaps as influential as any from the last century. The nonstory of two tramps at loose ends in a landscape barren of all but a single tree, amusing or distracting themselves from oppressive boredom while they wait for a mysterious figure who never arrives, the play became the ur-text for theatrical innovation and existential thought in the latter half of 20th century.' -Christopher Isherwood, The New York Times --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
