Samuel Beckett

Samuel Beckett (Dublin 1906-Paris 1989) was an Irish writer, dramatist and screenwriter. He distinguished himself as one of the great masters of the ‘theatre of the absurd’. Known principally for his linguistic experiments, in 1969 Becket was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Comédie (1965) was among the works included in the exhibition ‘Voice of Images’ (2012-13) at Palazzo Grassi.
