"“Spratt’s.” Every time I see Endgame I wait in anticipation for it. The way it seems to implode in the play’s taut, heavily silence. [...] the line’s sonic dimension is as important as its grim humor. Spratt’s. The opening sibilant fricative, the bilabial plosive, and the final dying hiss (low hiss – spike – fall: Endgame’s structure in miniature?)."
