Waiting for Godot - Samuel Beckett

Quite unwittingly, I deviated from my habitual ways with this play : As a rule, I like to read books in the language they were written in, when I can. Not until this afternoon did I learn that Irishman Beckett actually penned this drama in French before translating it himself into English.

Try as I may, I am having a hard time assessing this opus. It is unmistakably a major work in the sense that it was groundbreaking. To form a proper opinion, I would have to do some literary analysis first, and I just can't be bothered right now. Nor do I really have the time.
