Samuel Barclay Beckett (/ˈbɛkɪt/; 13 April 1906 – 22 December 1989) was an Irish novelist, playwright, short story writer, theatre director, poet, and literary translator. A resident of Paris for most of his adult life, he wrote in both French and English. Beckett's work offers a bleak, tragi-comic outlook on human existence, often coupled with black comedy and gallows humour, and became increasingly minimalist in his later career

From an inauspicious beginning at the tiny Left Bank Theatre de Babylone in 1953, followed by bewilderment among American and British audiences, Waiting for Godot has become of the most important and enigmatic plays of the past fifty years and a cornerstone of twentieth-century drama. As Clive Barnes wrote, Time catches up with genius.

Samuel Beckett Biography - Samuel Beckett was an Irish novelist, essayist, poet and playwright, born on 13th April 1906 in Foxrock, Dublin. While Beckett was in Paris he met James Joyce, the author of the highly criticized novel ‘Ullyses’, through another close friend of his. Beckett developed profoundness for Joyce who would have a great effect on Beckett’s life to come. He joined the same literary circle as Joyce inspiring him to write his first work which was a critical essay ‘Dant. runo Joyce’. Secondly Joyce’s daughter made advances towards Beckett which he declined on the grounds that she was schizophrenic.

Company is the most recent prose work by the Nobel Prize-winning author of Waiting for Godot, Endgame, and other great works of the post-World War II era. In Company, a man lying on his back in the darkness of an enclosed room hears a voice speaking to him or to some other being. The voice reminisces about significant moments in some person's life: a young child being scolded by his mother for asking about the distance of the sky, a child being born while his father takes a walk to avoid the horrors of childbirth, a man wondering whether his lover is pregnant, a child being born the day Christ died. The relentless voice finally tells the man that words are ending, that the idea of one with you in the dark is only a fable. In the final moment, we find the man alone, ready for the metaphoric cycle to begin anew. Beckett has reduced the story line of Company to the sparest of prose which, in its distilled form, accentuates what Alvarado Alvarez calls his unfailing stylistic control and economy of language, his remorseless stripping away of superfluities. In Company we find the familiar themes from Beckett's earlier work, here reshaped and transfigured, in what is probably the most remarkable literary exploration of our day.
