This book is one of the most significant and erudite attempts to give an insight into the amazing works of bohemian writer, Samuel Beckett. The main concern of the book is to provide reader with a significant perception of the play. Endgame exposes readers to the awesome world of implied and bewildering meanings. The book opens multiple layers of meanings and encourage readers to ruminate the text. In the light of H.P, Grice's theory of Conversational Principles, author achieves a noteworthy success in cracking down the absurd dialogues employed in the play. Samuel Beckett's works have always fascinated the readers with their phenomenon of absurdity. The perplexing and inscrutable nature of the play restricts readers who plunge in the world of implied meanings of the play. The book will go a long way in the appreciation of scholarly work on Samuel Beckett's Endgame. This book undertakes a study which necessarily involves the interpretation of what characters mean and how the context influences what is said. Conversational Principles, violated with certain concrete intention that are rooted in Socio-cultural context of a speech situation have been primarily discussed in the book.
