Summary note:
"Samuel Beckett's most accessible play is also one of the twentieth century's most moving dramas about aging, memory, and disappointment. Daniel Sack offers the first comprehensive survey of the Krapp's Last Tape with a general reader in mind. Structured around a series of questions, five approachable sections contextualize the play in the larger career of the Nobel-Prize-winning playwright, offer comparative analyses with his other signal works, and explore major thematic concerns. Discussions of significant productions, including those directed by Beckett himself, provide a useful resource to directors and actors, and ground interpretation of the play in terms of performance. Both a critical and personal exploration of this haunting play, this volume is a must-read for anyone with an interest in Beckett's work."-- Provided by publisher.
