    1. Πριν από μία ώρα περίπου τελείωσα απνευστί τις «Ευτυχισμένες Μέρες» του Σ. Μπέκετ και η απόφαση μου να γράψω αμέσως γι’ αυτό το έργο ήταν απολύτως συνειδητή. Είναι μία μικρή προσπάθεια να κρατήσω κάτι από όλη αυτή την μαγεία και την αίσθηση πληρότητας που σε κατακλύζει ότα [...]

    2. " Dias Felizes é um maravilhoso poema de amor, o canto de uma mulher que ainda quer ouvir e ver o homem que ama."Madeleine Renaud (actriz)Dias Felizes é uma metáfora da passagem do tempo, da resistência e da sobrevivência.Para além disso Dias Felizes é, talvez, um dos melhores trabalhos de Beckett, e Beckett é o absurdo, o discurso fragmentado, o minimalismo e aparente insignificância dos diálogos face à revelação que brota dos silêncios e das pausas. As peças de Beckett parecem t [...]

    3. Words fail, there are times when even they fail. However, speaking is Winnie's raison d'être, words keep flowing from her without conveying any meaning, just to fill the silence and the void.Early on, it struck me as upsetting the fact that Winnie was trying so hard to convince herself that it is a happy day, the wanting to get out of the mound and the simultaneous attachment to it. Never have I ever come across a play whose directorial instructions are as important as the play itself. I quickl [...]

    4. Read this and then watched the Broadway Theatre Archive production featuring Irene Worth. One of the most depressing works I have ever had the opportunity to encounter. There is much debate as to the meaning of the play - here is my interpretation: by 'grounding' ourselves into a 'happy' existence we are actually subordinating our essenced that will ultimately destroy who we really were becoming. "I have measured out my life with coffee spoons" is the way most of us will pass from our existence. [...]

    5. At the start of Happy Days, we see Winnie - a plump, fifty-year-old housewife of a woman – buried to her waist in the centre of a mound of earth. The sun blazes down in the form of a powerful spotlight. A barren landscape stretches into the distance. Beside Minnie on the mound are a large bag and a parasol. Throughout the play, she removes items from the bag, including a Browning automatic revolver (‘Brownie’) and a toothbrush. Halfway through the first of two short acts the parasol bursts [...]

    6. "O que eu acho maravilhoso é não se passar um dia (Sorriso.) para falar à moda antiga (Fim do sorriso.) quase nenhum, sem aprendermos qualquer coisa, por pouco que seja, desde que nos esforcemos por isso. E se, por razões obscuras, o mais pequeno esforço deixasse de ser possível, então é só fechar os olhos (Fecha-os.) e esperar que o dia chegue, o dia feliz em que a carne se derrete a tantos graus e a noite de luar dura tantas centenas de horas. (Pausa.) Eis o que eu acho reconfortante, [...]

    7. ‏“If you don't know where you are currently standing, you're dead.”Happy days! LOL!I like this play. I consider myself a big fan of the absurd theatre – it represents life as it is.Winnie and her husband Willie, represented most people nowadays – sinking in their daily routines without having any purpose. Reading the dialogue between them was a pleasure for me, I enjoyed it. I think it was simple and meaningful. I think Happy Days is more beautiful than Beckett’s most famous play Wai [...]

    8. «روزهای خوش» داستان زن و مردی میانسال است که با هم زندگی می‌کنند. زن مدام در حال صحبت و تک‌گویی است و مرد زیاد صحبت نمی‌کند و در تکرار شرایط زندگی زن، بیان اندک جملاتی از مرد باعث می‌شود که زن آن روز را روز خوش خود بداند. با پیش رفتن داستان زن در تکرار زمان و زندگی باز هم امیدوا [...]

    9. Wow this left me all depressed and disillusioned about life, death and everything in between! What I like is that the play begins with a surreal and bizarre situation and this doesn't clear up. This kind of makes you imagine all kinds of reasons why and how the woman and her husband are stuck there and living like that. There is so much in this play that makes it worth to read or see!Winnie seems swallowed by the earth, can't walk first and in act two can't move anything but her head, and still [...]

    10. WINNIE What would you say, Willie, speaking of your hair, them or it? (Pause.) The hair on your head, I mean. (Pause. Turning a little further) The hair on your head, Willie, what would you say speaking of the hair on your head, them or it?Long pause.WILLIE It.WINNIE (turning back front, front). Oh you are going to talk to me today, this is going to be a happy day! (Pause. Joy off.) Another happy day.

    11. Fascinating but not my favorite. Evidently Beckett regarded Winnie as a kind of earth mother spirit, indomitable, and I do find some patronizing piety or maybe just pity here, a refusal of the corrosive irony Beckett's male heroes have to endure in the midst of their own eschatological travails. The idea of the setting as a kind of post-apocalyptic degraded vacation-destination beach where the blazing bleaching sun never sets is wonderful, as is the whole mystery of the play's circumstance, lite [...]

    12. เป็นบทละครที่อ่านยากที่สุดของเบ็คเก็ตต์เท่าที่เคยอ่านมา ทั้งเรื่องคือการพล่ามอย่างเลื่อนลอยบนหัวข้อที่ไหลเลื่อนไปมาด้วยภาษาที่แตกๆ หักๆ ของวินนี่ หญิงวัยกลางคนซึ่งถูกฝัง [...]

    13. Someone once told me, “You don’t fuck with Beckett.” I agree. You don’t. You can’t. He is irrefutably one of the great geniuses of the Twentieth century. His words have become legend. ‘Waiting for Godot’ has become the vision of an entire age. ‘Endgame’ bashes our fears of our eventual ends in our faces. Beckett’s view of life, so effectively conveyed in his sometimes painfully absurd plays and writings, is one that pulled at the heartstrings of society when they were first p [...]

    14. typical of his late period works, beckett stages poignant commentary on the phenomenal desperation of singular existence. there again seems to be a palpable curtain both around and among the thoughts, speech, and behaviors of the winnie--her rambling commentary seemingly falling mute after immediate realization and encountering a hopelessly unpredictable and incomprehensible audience in willie, who too seems to be playing out an absurd experience of self. winnie's self-sustaining occupations of [...]

    15. Jedna Beckettova bonus, da završim s njim do daljnjeg (za cijeli život, po mogućnosti).Dva lika: Winnie i Willie. Čitam i mislim se: tko, dovraga, može naučiti toliki besmisleni dijalog napamet?? Samo su dva lika, ponavljam. Pomislio sam da je tome tako jer je radio drama, ali ne: tu su i detaljne, također uglavnom besmislene, didaskalije (P. Selem se u pogovoru indirektno slaže). Klišej pitanje, ali zanima me: na čemu je Beckett bio kad je ovo pisao?„Kakav divan današnji dan… “ [...]

    16. A very sobering tale on the meaninglessness of life! I think that it's a very deep play that really requires punctuational respect. That is, if it says "Pause", please pause! Because the emotion is only evoked if the play is read correctly or acted correctly.I like how it really intensifies emotions of our seeming meaningless lives i.e. when one looks back in a million years, every thing we ever did do (and when we do anything in life, we do it seriously and invest a great deal of care!) will no [...]

    17. this is a heartbreaking play, and probably the purest and most unsparing of beckett's visions, which is saying something. some irony in the fact that winnie is beckett's saddest character despite (because of) the fact that she is the most optimistic's hard to believe an actress could actually pull this play off. it's basically a sixty page stationary monologue (winnie's buried waist- (and then neck-) deep through the whole thing, with only the contents of her bag to work with). i would pay anyth [...]

    18. Amo esta obrita. Es la segunda vez que la leo. Extrañaba algo de sus ecos, y la necesitaba volver a sentir. No creo que se pueda seguir hablando de Beckett, quiero decir, no creo que tenga sentido, ya se ha dicho demasiado. Pero creo que es vital leerlo, tenerlo presente, tenerlo cerca. Beckett es uno de esos autores demoledores y sin retorno. No son tantos.

    19. An absurdist parable about a woman who tries to find the best in her lot as her options narrow in a literal sense, buried up to her waist in sand at first and later up to her neck, her beloved husband virtually invisible and uncommunicative. A proto-feminist work (1961) and one of Beckett's most touching plays.

    20. والكتاب الذي معي فيه مسرحيتين وهما:لعبة النهاية والأيام السعيدة لن أتحدث عن المسرحيتين لاي سبب من الأسباب لأنهما أما فهو مستوي العقل وفيها من العمق الزائد الذي لا سبيل إلي أمثالي فهم مسرح اللامعقول .وكلمة "" هنيهة صمت "" أكثر كلمة سلتقاها أمام وجهك لم أفهم أي حاجه والله العظيم [...]

    21. Happy Days presents a bleak landscape that is severed from anything like the real world. A woman, Winnie, is buried up to her waist in a mound at center stage. There is one other character, Willie, who for most of the play is hidden behind the mound, burrowing head first into it. However unrealistic this sounds there is a certain realism from her handbag that contains some of the detritus of everyday life that plays an important role for Winnie. She is a seemingly irrepressibly cheerful woman wh [...]

    22. She decays into sands of time caught, struck in memories of happy days of past and the hopeless hope of a future that would resemble more to the past than the present; her hopes are of a really old bird who can no longer fly or even if it could fly it won't enjoy as much as it once did - and yet this bird looks up to skies and hopes; hopes like her too down-to-earth husband doesn't. Her surroundings like her body are just ruins of happy days of past, her hope is as depressing as her husband's pe [...]

    23. This is bullshit.Saw this live with a talented cast, and by that I mean one actress. Perhaps I'm one of those incompetent dilettante who is too dumb to appreciate Beckett's genius, but I can honestly say this has no redeemable qualities. None whatsoever. If you left the performance 5, 15, 25, or 35 minutes into the play, or stayed at the end, it wouldn't have made a difference. Historical and philosophical allusions aside, this is complete drivel. People like clever writers and clever plays, but [...]

    24. I have read this play before, and I've had the great pleasure of seeing it in the theater years ago. I reread it because I'm thinking of writing a Beckett-ish play next (look for a Waiting for Godot review soon). I enjoyed it again.Happy Days is a jumpy little play, which says a lot only about the dialogue as the characters don't really move, and actors have to be VERY good to carry this one. Winnie and Willie are the only two characters, Winny lives waist-deep in a hill and Willie on the mound [...]

    25. I had never read anything by Beckett before. I do not usually dedicate that much time to reading plays, actually. What led me to Happy Days? I was looking for Tennessee Williams and Beckett was the one who showed up. Completely different styles, definitely. Thematically speaking though? Not so sure.A reflection on the human condition, I would call it. Odd, yes, but as honest as it gets. The writing is rather frenetic, and also frenetically paused. Winnie seems to fear silence, for it is sound th [...]

    26. 4.5 SterneZu meiner grossen Erleichterung hat Glückliche Tage auch auf mich gewirkt (im Gegensatz zu Warten auf Godot und Endspiel) und ich fand es grossartig. Der Kontrast zwischen Winnie und ihrer Lage war irgendwie unheimlich beengend und sich das ständig vorstellen zu müssen, wie man da feststeckt, war einfach unangenehm (die richtige Art von unangenehm). Das es dann auch recht anstrengend ist, ihren ununterbrochenen Monolog zu lesen, gibt zusätzlich noch das Gefühl, dass Willie wohl ha [...]

    27. It's difficult for me to give an honest review of this play, one because I've never actually seen it preformed (and plays are in no way meant to be read like this, especially Happy Days with all its stage directions interrupting the lines beyond easy readability) and two because the subject matter is a bit above my head (in the sense that it seems to focus on a long marriage, something I have no personal experience with). That said, the play is enjoyable and seems to have a firm grip on what it' [...]

    28. "Oh les beaux jours" : sans doute l'une des plus belles, des plus drôles et des plus émouvantes pièces de Beckett. Une femme bavarde seule, et, chose étrange, est a-demi enterrée, dans un mamelon de terre. Un homme énigmatique se tient derrière elle. Son discours est banal : elle prie, se rappelle, se réjouit, se sent gagnée par la décrépitude de l'âge. Dans son sac, un revolver, qu'elle n'utilisera pas. Au deuxième acte, elle est enterrée jusqu'au cou et, hormis le visage, a perdu [...]
