. Best Ebook, Happy Days By Samuel Beckett This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Happy Days, Essay By Samuel Beckett Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You Read this and then watched the Broadway Theatre Archive production featuring Irene Worth One of the most depressing works I have ever had the opportunity to encounter There is much debate as to the meaning of the play here is my interpretation by grounding ourselves into a happy existence we are actually subordinating our essenceand that will ultimately destroy who we really were becoming I have measured out my life with coffee spoons is the way most of us will pass from our existencemost of us will not even rage against the dying of the light because our light died long before we did metaphysical zombies No talk of Mr Beckett until after Christmas something tells me Mr Beckett would have LOVED to be the top elf for Krampus Words fail, there are times when even they fail. However, speaking is Winnie s raison d tre, words keep flowing from her without conveying any meaning, just to fill the silence and the void.Early on, it struck me as upsetting the fact that Winnie was trying so hard to convince herself that it is a happy day, the wanting to get out of the mound and the simultaneous attachment to it Never have I ever come across a play whose directorial instructions are as important as the play itself I quickly became engrossed in reading Beckett s directions and it felt as if I was watching it on scene I found it an exceptional avant garde piece of art. Dias Felizes um maravilhoso poema de amor, o canto de uma mulher que ainda quer ouvir e ver o homem que ama. Madeleine Renaud actriz Dias Felizes uma met fora da passagem do tempo, da resist ncia e da sobreviv ncia.Para al m disso Dias Felizes , talvez, um dos melhores trabalhos de Beckett, e Beckett o absurdo, o discurso fragmentado, o minimalismo e aparente insignific ncia dos di logos face revela o que brota dos sil ncios e das pausas As pe as de Beckett parecem ter todas o mesmo intuito o de nos incomodar, de nos levar ao desassossego e interroga o, de nos provocar o riso para logo percebermos que um riso feito de l grimas E sobretudo, acabar a leitura ou sair da sala de espet culos com vontade de gritar e expulsar a afli o. At the start of Happy Days, we see Winnie a plump, fifty year old housewife of a woman buried to her waist in the centre of a mound of earth The sun blazes down in the form of a powerful spotlight A barren landscape stretches into the distance Beside Minnie on the mound are a large bag and a parasol Throughout the play, she removes items from the bag, including a Browning automatic revolver Brownie and a toothbrush Halfway through the first of two short acts the parasol bursts into flames from the unrelenting heat At the start of the play she seems to be alone, but soon we see that there is a man Willie on the far side of the mound, reading a newspaper, though we see only the back of his head for the whole of the first act He only crawls over the mound to face Winnie in a dramatic and moving scene at the end of the play, when she is buried to her neck in the mound Winnie does most of the talking, addressing many of her comments to Willie, and he responds only occasionally and briefly When she seems to be nodding off at times she is brought awake again by an unseen bell.At a first reading this play, like all of Beckett s plays, leaves you with a vague sense of depression and incomprehension, though you do also feel a sense of achievement in having got through it from beginning to end and of having read something worthwhile Subsequent readings throw up all sorts of allusions and echoes that completely escaped you the first time, and if you then and only then read a guide to the play you recognise it for the masterpiece it is a highly polished jewel, a starkly concentrated appraisal of the human condition packed into two short acts, that lesser writers would and do take volumes to laboriously spell out Despite seeming a rambling, knocked off in ten minutes affair, it is in fact a highly sophisticated interplay of repetition and variation with leitmotifs, silence and precise movements that are all indicated in the meticulous stage directions, and is almost operatic in its effect.Beckett is never patronising, he leaves you perhaps somewhat dismissively to work out for yourself what it is all about Scratch the surface and you will find allusions to Zeno, Shakespeare, Aristotle, the Anglican Liturgy and Holy Communion and Dante, as well as The Merry Widow You may see it, with A Alvarez, as a sour view of a cosy marriage , or agree with The Times that the text is an elaborate structure of internal harmonies with recurring clich s twisted into bitter truths, and key phrases chiming ironically through the development as in a passacaglia For me, it is all of these things, but perhaps most of all it is a comment on ageing, loneliness and loss It will haunt all who see it or read it. , O que eu acho maravilhoso n o se passar um diaSorrisopara falar moda antiga Fim do sorriso. quase nenhum, sem aprendermos qualquer coisa, por pouco que seja, desde que nos esforcemos por isso E se, por raz es obscuras, o mais pequeno esfor o deixasse de ser poss vel, ent o s fechar os olhos Fecha os. e esperar que o dia chegue, o dia feliz em que a carne se derrete a tantos graus e a noite de luar dura tantas centenas de horas Pausa. Eis o que eu acho reconfortante, quando perco a coragem e come o a invejar a sorte dos animais a caminho do matadouro. If you don t know where you are currently standing, you re dead Happy days LOL I like this play I consider myself a big fan of the absurd theatre it represents life as it is.Winnie and her husband Willie, represented most people nowadays sinking in their daily routines without having any purpose Reading the dialogue between them was a pleasure for me, I enjoyed it I think it was simple and meaningful I think Happy Days is beautiful than Beckett s most famous play Waiting for Godot I liked it. .
