Who Wrote The Play Endgame? (SOLVED)

Good literature, the very best of literature, makes you think and makes you imagine 😉 When you read you put your own design on the book 🤓 You interpret it 🙌 The answers are not given to you, you must find them if they are, indeed, wanting to be found. Beckett is very limited in his explanations. While I am unsure of what the play might represent, it is possible that it could be many things. It’s not obvious. This is like gazing through a glass to see if there’s a world beyond ours. It is up to you to make the decision with Endgame. [1]
Nagg, Hamm’s mother, and Nell, his parents who lost their legs years ago to a bicycle accident, still live in ashbins. They occasionally come out of them only for their son’s curse. Clov dies, and Hamm knows that his mother will soon pass away. Hamm is ready for the final battle. First, to live out his father’s life and then, to meet his inevitable end without any comfort. Hamm solves the problem in terms of his last moves in Chess. A king trying to avoid checkmate for as long as possible, with harsh asides about religion. “Get out here and love each other!” “Lick your neighbor as yourself! Pozzo’s gravedigger quote in Waiting for Godot is echoed by Clov when he said, “The beginning is in your beginning and you continue.” Clov is about to depart, bitter at Hamm’s past mistakes, but not feeling any compassion for Hamm.

Clov (Luke Mullins), a limping man, performs the daily tasks of opening windows and killing rats, and tending the immobile Hamm, Colin Friels, who berates him and keeps his mouth shut. As the servant bickers with his dependent master, Hamm’s elderly parents, Nagg (Rhys McConnochie) and Nell (Julie Forsyth), pop their heads out of dustbins to indulge nostalgia and ask for sugary things to eat. The world around them is in disarray, and the larder has run out. All four characters may be dying. Although they tell some jokes and share stories, empty spats is their main form of communication. At the end of the play one character is a corpse, another has left the room – and yet nothing has tangibly changed. Jaylon Grady receives credit for this scene.

Pozzo in Godot is, upon his first appearance, a ham and a grandiose, proud figure, very inclined to make a big deal of himself as well as his failures. He expects Didi and Gogo to know his name and is most put out when they don’t. It is fitting that Hamm, with the connotation of Hamm actor in his later works, should be given this name. Hamm still keeps up the great tradition: “Can there be misery loftier than mine?” he asks in his very opening words: as a good old theatrical prima donna, he expects to outshine all the others, even if only in terms of the degree of his misery.
