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.

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 mov

دست آخر( آخر بازی ) نمایشنامه ای است که به شدت در برابر هر تعبیر فلسفی، تمثیلی و نمادین مقاومت می کند. مانند دیگر آثار بکت، در اینجا نیز هرگز با تصویر کاملی روبرو نمی شویم و موقعیتی کاملا گسیخته در قالب نمایش عرضه می شود. دست آخر به جای بیان فقدان معنا، به نشان دادن بصری این فقدان روی آورده است
نمایش با وارد شدن کلاو به صحنه، کناز زدن پرده دو پنجره، نگاه های دزدکی به بیرون و سپس برداشتن ملحفه ها آغاز می شود. هیو کنر در

-There's no more nature.
-No more 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.
K.D. Absolutely
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 o

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 TS

Lê-se em pouco mais de uma hora, mas fica colado à pele; um dia, uma semana, uma vida. Beckett não se esquece. Assim como não se esquece a inquietação que as suas peças provocam: a confusão de sentimentos, o vazio, a angústia…porque leva-nos ao limite, faz-nos rir e sabemos que não era para rir, era para chorar, caramba! Era para gritar!

Foi a peça mais sombria que li de Samuel Beckett, agora, é apanhar os cacos e tentar restaurar a ruína emocional.

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.

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.

An absurd masterpiece
13 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-apocaly

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 ...more

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.

Beckett directs Beckett - Endgame (Finale di partita) : http://youtu.be/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.

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 ...more

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 emotiona

This is my second time reading Samuel Beckett's play "Endgame" and I must say that I am a lot more 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 w ...more

I read this in English at http://samuel-beckett.net/endgame.html, 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 toward

when I see the Goodreads 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

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 ...more
