“Beckett stalks after men on their way out. . . . His plays and novels (Molloy, Murphy) are metaphors of modern man’s spiritual bafflement.” Time

Samuel Beckett, the great minimalist master and winner of the 1969 Nobel Prize for Literature, has produced some of his most widely praised work for the stage in the form of the shorter play. This complete and definitive collection of twenty-five plays and “playlets” includes Becket’s celebrated Krapp’s Last Tape, Embers Cascando, Play, Eh Joe, Not I, and Footfalls, as well as his mimes, all his radio and television plays, his screenplay for Film, his adaptation of Robert Pinget’s The Old Tune, and the more recent Catastrophe, What Where, Quad, and Night and Dreams.
