A timely reassessment of one of the most important theatre 'movements' of the 20th century
Introduction: Reassessing the Theatre of the Absurd 'The Parable of Estagon's Struggle with the Boot' in Waiting for Godot The Pinteresque Oedipal Household: The Interrogation Scene(s) in The Birthday Party The Parable of the White Clown: The Use of Ritual in Jean Genet's The Blacks: A Clown Show Berenger, The Sisyphean Hero Conclusion: Theorizing a 'Female Absurd' in Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart as a Means of Reassessing the Theatre of the Absurd
Fifty years after the publication of Martin Esslin's The Theatre of the Absurd , which suggests that 'absurd' plays purport the meaninglessness of life, this book uses the works of five major playwrights of the 1950s to provide a timely reassessment of one of the most important theatre 'movements' of the 20th century.
