More About the Author

Samuel Beckett was born in Dublin in 1906. He was educated at Portora Royal School and Trinity College, Dublin, where he graduated in 1927. His made his poetry debut in 1930 with Whoroscope and followed it with essays and two novels before World War Two. He wrote one of his most famous plays, Waiting for Godot, in 1949 but it wasn't published in English until 1954. Waiting for Godot brought Beckett international fame and firmly established him as a leading figure in the Theatre of the Absurd. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1961. Beckett continued to write prolifically for radio, TV and the theatre until his death in 1989.

Product Description

From the Publisher

This is part of a series of twelve short volumes brought out
ten years after the great writer's death, containing the best of the
shorter writing, ranging from early work to his final writings. All have
covers with the photographs of Samuel Beckett taken by the Irish
photographer John Minihan, which, catching the author in different moods,
have become classics on their own.

From the Back Cover

The author described these eight short texts as fizzles, all
except `Still' originally written in French and translated later by the
author into English. Like the `Texts for Nothing' they are mainly outbursts
about the problems of life, but mellower in tone than the earlier work.
Haunting texts of great beauty, they show Samuel Beckett as a poetic fabler
unequalled in the originality and power of his unique vision.
