Tom Stoppard's first novel, originally published in 1966 just before the premiere of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern . It is Tom Stoppard's very special skill as the master comedian of ideas in the modern theater to create brilliant, biting humor out of serious concerns.

Tom Stoppard's first novel, originally published in 1966 just before the premiere of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, is an uproarious fantasy set in modern London. The cast includes a penniless, dandified Malquist with a liveried coach; Malquist's Boswellian biographer, Moon, who frantically scribbles as a bomb ticks in his pocket; a couple of cowboys, one being named Jasper Jones; a lion who's banned from the Ritz; an Irishman on a donkey claiming to be the Risen Christ; and three irresistible women.

a play by Tom Stoppard. In postmodern theatre, nothing is absolute or. eternal; nothing is exempt for skepticism and all meanings and values are historically. However, Stoppard's use of multiple perspectives, parodic echoing; seeming. instability and, his mixing of theatrical and intellectual ideas lead some critics more. confident to label the work "postmodern". The way in which Stoppard's Arcadia may be seen as a postmodernist play.

Tom Stoppard has often pronounced: "I write plays because dialogue is the most respectable way of contradicting myself." This book shows how Stoppard develops the various contradictions he tackles into different oppositions that are not, and will never be, reconciled. Such oppositions are between the individual and the Establishment, between two opposite views on journalism: the idealistic view (which believes in the freedom of the press) and the realistic one (which believes in the right-thinking press and the closed shop), between the moral absolutes and the relativist morals, between the totalitarian regime and its dissidents, between fate and free will?whether man is fated or having free will?, etc. In doing so, the book shows Stoppard's dexterity in tackling such different issues as art, love, classicism, romanticism, biography, identity, politics, logical positivism, fate, free will, etc through a number of prominent figures such as George Moore, Alfred Ayer, James Joyce, Tristan Tzara, Vladimir Lenin, Lord Byron, A. E. Housman, Oscar Wilde, etc by dealing with theories like quantum mechanics, Catastrophe Theory, Chaos Theory, etc.
