Historical Who is Who

BECKETT, Samuel

1906 - 1989
Ireland/France
LITERATURE, PHILOSOPHY

 

Multilingual wordsmith. He dramatized the ordinary in life and found meaning in the silences between the words to be as potent as the words themselves. He was shaken by the death of his father, he was active in the French Resistance during WW2, and he chose to wed – moral statements in themselves, even though finding the words for moral sense is commonly a struggle for him in a world of negativity and emptiness.
