Waiting for Godot, written directly in French in 1948, had its world premiere on January 5, 1953, in the tiny Left Bank Théâtre de Babylone 5n Paris. Although not an immediate success, by slow degrees, though word of mouth, Godot became the talk of Paris. As productions spread across the globe, reactions were varied, but the very controversy generated by the play tended to assure its "success." Rarely has a play labeled "avant-garde" become so quickly a "classic."
Weather it is Beckett's greatest work of drama remains for history to determine. Unquestionably, it is a work which has captured the imagination of our time—and perhaps all time. Though the battle of interpretation still rages around Waiting for Godot, it is now recognized as a seminal work of modern fiction ad has become a part of theater history. The author himself translated his play into English.
