Nick Mount on Waiting for Godot


“That's how it is on this bitch of an earth.”
-Pozzo in Waiting for Godot
As mentioned in the July issue of Deep Madder Monthly, Beckett's Waiting for Godot is a play that captures the Deep Madder sentiment like very few other things in the world. Here is a lecture on the play given by Nick Mount, presented by the venerable TVO. Mount is one of my favourite professors at University of Toronto, and he gives a very apposite, almost Deep Madderian description of the emotional climate presented by said play. Please at least watch the initial anecdote, like ten minutes or something. It's really interesting.
