Biography

The novelist, playwright, critic and poet Samuel Beckett (Dublin, 1906 - Paris, 1989) was one of the leading figures of twentieth century literary experimentation and the theatre of the absurd. A friend and collaborator of James Joyce, he gained international acclaim for works such as the trilogy of novels Molloy (1951), Malone Dies (1951) and The Unnamable (1953) and the play Waiting for Godot (1952). From 1945 onwards, he began to write much of his literary work in French. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969, and from then on he began to write less and to experiment with new media such as television and cinema.
