Krapp's Last Tape, Not I, That Time, and a Piece of Monologue (Naxos)

Krapp's Last Tape, Not I, That Time, and a Piece of Monologue (Naxos)

by Samuel Beckett

CD-Audio Publication Date: 10/05/2016

 

Samuel Beckett, one of the great avant-garde Irish dramatists and writers of the second half of the twentieth century, was born on 13 April 1906. His centenary was celebrated throughout 2006 with performances of his major plays, including Waiting for Godot.

Here are the two most famous plays for solo voice. Krapp's Last Tape finds an old man, with his tape recorder, musing over the past and future. Not I is a remarkable tour de force for a single actress, as a woman emits memories and fears. Also included are two other singular short dramas for single voice, That Time read by John Moffatt and A Piece of Monologue read by Peter Marinker. It follows the highly acclaimed recordings of Beckett's Trilogy, Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable published by Naxos AudioBooks.

Samuel Beckett

Samuel Beckett was born in Dublin in 1906 and graduated from Trinity College. He settled in Paris in 1937, after travels in Germany and periods of residence in London and Dublin. He remained in France during the Second World War and was active in the French Resistance.

From the spring of 1946 his plays, novels, short fiction, poetry and criticism were largely written in French. With the production of En attendant Godot in Paris in 1953, Beckett's work began to achieve widespread recognition. During his subsequent career as a playwright and novelist in both French and English he redefined the possibilities of prose fiction and writing for the theatre. Samuel Beckett won the Prix Formentor in 1961 and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1969. He died in Paris in December 1989.
