With the appearance of En Attendant Godot (Waiting for Godot) at the Théâtre de Babylone in Paris inthe literary world was shocked by the appearance of a drama so different and yet so intriguing that it virtually created the term "Theater of the Absurd," and the entire group of dramas which developed out of this type of theater is always.

More accessible than his other great works (such as my other favorites, Malone Dies and The Unnameable), Molloy still offers an incredible richness of language and one of Beckett's great characters/5(19). Thomas Becket, also called Thomas à Becket or Thomas of London, (born c.Cheapside, London, England—died DecemCanterbury, Kent; canonized ; feast day December 29), chancellor of England (–62) and archbishop of Canterbury (–70) during the reign of King Henry career was marked by a long quarrel with Henry that ended with Becket’s murder in.

It is a dramatic film adaptation of the play Becket or the Honour of God by Jean Anouilh made by Hal Wallis Productions and Music by: Laurence Rosenthal.Like many other Beckett characters, Krapp belongs to the world of the outcasts.

He is dressed in "rusty black" trousers and waistcoat with a dirty white shirt. He looks rather like one of the derelicts in Beckett's other plays.

The emphasis on the white face and purple nose suggests that he is another of Beckett's "music hall" characters.
