Endgame, Samuel BECKETT

Samuel BECKETT show, in his plays, the misery of the humans conditions by the theatre of the absurd like waiting for Godot written in 1954, Endgame in 1957 and Happy Days in 1961 for example.

His plays show the absurd of the humans conditions.

As Ionesco, he uses tragic and comic. The characters use of meaningless words that give illusion of the dialogue.

In Endgame, Hamm is in blinded and paralysed, waiting his drug, he tells him story alone and tyrannize Clov, his adopted son, and his old parents, Nagg and Nell. This four characters live in grey house, without furnitures, and are maybe, the last survivors of an humanity destroy. The plays is a long conversation, pace by a silences and a repetitions.

I love this story because I find it very funny with the absurd characters.

Animal Farm by George ORWELL

Hi everyone, today i’m going to talk about a famous book intitled « The Animal Farm » written in 1945 and published in 1984 by a famous writter George Orwell.

This farm is not as the other farm. In fact, she’s not ordinary, she have animals who speak !

We have in a first group the pigs, they manage the farm and all the animals, the pigs who have the supreme authority : Boule de neige and Napoléon. They instaured this followings regulation: « All two legs is an ennemy. All four legs or all fowl, a friend. Any animals don’t will sleep in a bed. Any animals don’t will wear they locks. Any animals don’t will drink of alcohol. Any animals don’t will kill an other animal. All animals are equal. »

The time progress and the rain erase they regulations. The donkey, a cynic, decode again : « All animals are equals, but some are more famous than others ».

To conclude, I liked this book, because he refers at the World War II but we don’t know directly the message with the animals. I’m a big fan of that historical period so it’s for me an amazing thing to present you this literature.
