Eugene Ionesco, Eugene Ionescu, Eugene Ionescu, November 26, 1909, Slatina, Romania – March 28, 1994, Paris) is a Romanian playwright, one of the founders of the aesthetic current of absurdism. Member of the French Academy (1970).
Ionesco was born on November 26, 1909 in Slatina (Romania). His parents took him to Paris, and his first language was French. In Romania, the family returned when the son was already a teenager. He entered the University of Bucharest, preparing to become a teacher of French. At the beginning of the literary activity Ionesco wrote poems in French and Romanian, and also composed a daring pamphlet called “No!” The pamphlet was sustained in the nihilistic spirit of the Dadaists and, demonstrating the unity of opposites, first condemned and then extolled three Romanian writers.
In the “tragedy of language” “La cantatrice chauve” (1950), the first play Ionesco, depicts a world that has gone mad, “the collapse of reality.” This play was followed by “Lesson” (La lecon, 1951), “Chairs” (Les chaises, 1952), “New Tenant” (Le nouveau locataire, 1953), “The Future in the Eggs” (L’Avenir est dans les oeufs, 1957), The Disinterested Killer (Tueur sans gages, 1959), The Rhinoceros (1959), The Air Pedestrian (Le pieton de l’air, 1962), The King Dies (Le roi se meurt, 1962) ), Thirst and Hunger (La soif et la faim, 1964), Macbett (1973), Man with Suitcases (1975) and Le voyage chez les morts (1980). Ionesco also wrote the novel “Lonely”
