Samuel Beckett – an Anglo-French playwright and novelist, was born in the city of Dublin.

Beckett studied and taught in Paris. He wrote mostly in French, he often translated his works into English.

The first published novel by Samuel Beckett is “Murphy”. The work serves as a typical example of his subsequent work to eliminate the traditional elements of the plot, the characters, and the environment.

In this theater of absurdity, Beckett combines bitter humor with an overwhelming sense of pain and loss. The most famous and controversial of his dramas are “Waiting for Godot” and “End of the Game”, which were performed all over the world. In 1969, Samuel Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
