Beckett

An Irish avant-garde playwright, poet and novelist who is considered one of the fathers of the postmodernist movement, Samuel Beckett (1906–1989) was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969 "for his writing, which—in new forms for the novel and drama—in the destitution of modern man acquires its elevation." Come inside and explore the world of Beckett: his life, his work, and his character.
