TOM STOPPARD "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead" SIGNED FIRST EDITION Rare
Grove Press, New York, 1967. First American edition of the playwright's classic work. Octavo, original cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine in archival protective cover. Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm's-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare's play. In Tom Stoppard's best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end. "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead [is] verbally dazzling, the most exciting, witty intellectual treat imaginable." (Edith Oliver, The New Yorker). SIGNED on the title page by Tom Stoppard. Loosely laid in is Tom Stoppard's card and a signed photo of Stoppard. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
