He wrote in both English and French. Beckett’s work offers a bleak, tragicomic outlook on human existence, often coupled with black comedy and gallows humor, and became increasingly minimalist in his later career. He is considered samue, of the last modernist writers, and one of the key figures in what Martin Esslin called the ” Theatre of the Absurd “.

Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature “for his writing, which—in new forms for the novel and drama—in the destitution of modern man acquires its elevation”.

Beckett had one older brother, Frank Edward Beckett — At the age of samyel, Beckett attended a local playschool in Dublin, where he started to learn music, and then moved to Earlsfort House School in Dublin city centre near Harcourt Street. The Becketts were members of the Anglican Church of Ireland. The family home, Cooldrinagh in the Dublin suburb of Foxrockwas a large house and garden complete with tennis court built in by Samuel’s father, William.

The house and garden, together with the surrounding countryside where he often went walking with his expulsaso, the nearby Leopardstown Racecoursethe Foxrock railway station and Harcourt Street station at the city terminus of the line, all feature in his prose and plays.

He left 3 years later, in A natural athlete, Beckett excelled at cricket as a left-handed batsman and a left-arm medium-pace bowler.

Later, he was to play for Dublin University and played two first-class games against Northamptonshire. Lucewho introduced him to the work of Henri Bergson [8]. He was elected a Scholar in Modern Languages in This meeting had a profound effect on the young man.

Beckett assisted Joyce in various ways, one of which was research towards the book that became Finnegans Wake. InBeckett published his first work, a critical essay entitled “Dante The essay defends Joyce’s work and method, chiefly from allegations of wanton obscurity and dimness, and was Beckett’s contribution to Our Exagmination Round His Factification for Incamination of Work in Progress a book of essays on Joyce which also included contributions by Eugene JolasRobert McAlmonand William Carlos Williams.

Beckett’s close relationship with Joyce and his family cooled, however, when he rejected the advances of Joyce’s daughter Lucia owing to her progressing schizophrenia. Beckett’s first short story, “Assumption”, was published in Jolas’s periodical transition. InBeckett returned to Trinity College as a lecturer.

It was a literary parody, for Beckett had in fact invented the poet and his movement that claimed to be “at odds with all that is clear and distinct in Descartes samuwl. Beckett later insisted that he had not intended to fool his audience. He commemorated it with the poem “Gnome”, which was inspired by his reading of Johann Wolfgang Goethe ‘s Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship and eventually published in The Dublin Magazine in Spend the years of learning squandering Courage for the years of veckett Through a world politely turning From the loutishness of learning [12].

Beckett travelled in Europe. He spent some time in London, where becketr he published Prousthis critical study of French author Marcel Proust.

Two years later, following his father’s death, he began two years’ treatment with Tavistock Clinic psychoanalyst Dr. Aspects of it became evident in Beckett’s later works, such as Watt and Waiting for Godot. Despite his inability to get it published, however, the novel served as a source for many of Beckett’s early poems, as well as for his first full-length book, the short-story collection More Pricks Than Kicks.


Eliotand bedkett French symbolists as their precursors. In bcekett these poets as forming “the nucleus of a living poetic in Ireland”, Beckett was tracing the outlines of an Irish poetic modernist canon. In —the year that Beckett successfully published a book of his poetry, Echo’s Bones and Other Precipitates —Beckett worked on his novel Murphy.

In mid he wrote to Eisenstein and Vsevolod Pudovkin to offer himself as their apprentice. Nothing came of this, however, as Beckett’s letter was lost owing to Eisenstein’s quarantine during the smallpox outbreak, as well as his focus on a script re-write of his postponed film production. Ina friend had suggested him to look up the works of Dl Geulincxwhich Beckett did and he took many notes. The philosopher’s name is mentioned beckkett Murphy and the reading apparently left a strong impression.

Returning to Ireland briefly inhe oversaw the publication of Murphywhich he translated into French the following year. He fell out with his mother, which contributed to his decision to settle permanently in Paris. Beckett remained in Paris following the outbreak of World War II inpreferring, in his own words, “France at war to Ireland at peace”.

Sometime around DecemberBeckett had a brief affair with Peggy Guggenheimwho nicknamed him “Oblomov” after the character in Ivan Goncharov ‘s novel.

In January in Paris, Beckett was stabbed in the chest and nearly killed when he refused the solicitations of a notorious pimp who went samue the name of Prudent.

Joyce arranged a private room for Beckett at the hospital.

The publicity surrounding the stabbing attracted the expulsaddo of Suzanne Dechevaux-Dumesnilwho previously knew Beckett slightly from his first stay in Paris. This time, however, the two would begin a lifelong companionship. Sanuel a preliminary hearing, Beckett asked his attacker for the motive behind the stabbing.

Je m’excuse” [“I do not know, sir. After the Nazi German occupation of France inBeckett joined the French Resistancein which he worked as a courier. There he continued to assist the Resistance by storing armaments in the back yard of his home. During the two years that Beckett stayed in Roussillon he indirectly helped the Maquis sabotage the German army in the Vaucluse mountains, though he rarely spoke about his wartime work in later life.

InBeckett returned to Dublin for a brief beckettt. His entire future direction in literature appeared to him. Beckett had felt that he would remain forever in the shadow of Joyce, certain to never best him at his own game. His revelation prompted him to change direction and to acknowledge both his own stupidity and his interest in ignorance and impotence:. He was always adding to it; you only have to look at his proofs to see that.

I realized that my own way was in impoverishment, in lack of knowledge and in taking away, in subtracting rather than in adding. Knowlson argues that “Beckett was rejecting the Joycean principle that knowing more was a way of creatively understanding the world and controlling it In future, his work would focus on poverty, failure, exile and loss — as he put it, on man as a ‘non-knower’ and as a ‘non-can-er.

Beckett fictionalised the experience in his play Krapp’s Last Tape While listening to a tape he made earlier in his life, Krapp hears his younger self say “clear to me at last that the dark I have always struggled to keep under is in reality my most Beckett later explained to Knowlson that the missing words on the tape are “precious ally”.

Beckett also began to write his fourth novel, Mercier et Camierwhich was not published until The novel presaged his most famous work, the play Waiting for Godotwhich was written not long afterwards. Despite being a native English speaker, Beckett wrote in French because—as he himself claimed—it was easier for him thus to write “without style”. Beckett is most famous for his play En attendant Godot Waiting for Godot. Like most of his works afterthe play was first written in French with the title En attendant Godot.


Beckett worked on the play between October and January Dechevaux-Dumesnil became his agent and sent the manuscript to multiple producers until they met Roger Blinthe soon-to-be director of the play [27]. Blin’s knowledge of French theatre and vision alongside Beckett heckett what he wanted the play to represent contributed greatly to its success.

In a much-quoted article, the critic Vivian Mercier wrote that Beckett “has achieved a theoretical impossibility—a play in which nothing happens, that yet keeps audiences glued to their seats. What’s more, since the second act is a subtly different expulsaco of the first, he has written a play in which nothing happens, twice.

The play was a critical, popular, and controversial success in Paris. It opened in London in to mainly negative reviews, but the tide turned with positive reactions from Harold Hobson in The Sunday Times and, fxpulsado, Kenneth Tynan. After the showing in Miami, the play became extremely popular, with highly successful performances in the US and Germany.

The play is a favourite: Beckett translated all of his works into English himself, with the exception of Molloyfor which he collaborated with Patrick Bowles. The success of Waiting for Godot opened up a career in theatre for its author. Beckett went on to write successful full-length plays, including Fin de partie EndgameKrapp’s Last Tapewritten in EnglishHappy Daysalso written in Englishand Play The s were a time of change for Beckett, both on a personal level and as a writer.

Inhe married Suzanne in a secret civil ceremony in England its secrecy due to reasons relating to French inheritance law. The success of his plays led to invitations to attend rehearsals and productions around the world, leading eventually to a new career as a theatre director.

He continued writing sporadically for radio and extended his scope to include cinema and television. He began to write in English again, although he also wrote in French until the end of his life. From the late s until his death, Beckett had a relationship with Barbara Braya widow who worked as a script editor for the BBC.

Knowlson wrote of them: Beckett seems to have been immediately attracted by her and she to him. Their encounter was highly significant for them both, for it represented the beginning of a relationship that was to last, in parallel sauel that with Suzanne, for exlulsado rest of his life.

Anticipating that her intensely damuel husband would be saddled with fame from that moment on, Suzanne called the award a “catastrophe”. While Beckett did not devote much time to interviews, he sometimes met the artists, scholars, and admirers who sought him out in the anonymous lobby of the Hotel PLM St.

Jacques in Paris near his Montparnasse home. Suzanne died on expulsavo July Confined to a nursing home and suffering from emphysema and possibly Parkinson’s diseaseBeckett died on 22 December.

Beckett’s career as a writer can be roughly divided into three periods: Beckett’s earliest works are generally considered to have been strongly influenced by the work of his friend James Joyce. They expulsaod erudite and seem to display the author’s learning merely for its own sake, resulting in several obscure passages. The opening phrases of the short-story collection More Pricks than Kicks affords a representative sample of this style:.

It was morning and Belacqua was stuck in the first of the canti in the moon. He was so bogged that he could move neither backward nor forward. Blissful Beatrice was there, Dante also, and she explained the spots on the moon to him.
