      Beckett, an Irish writer, born on Ap , is characterized as an Absurdist playwright who addresses the global existential crisis set in place by World War II. His body of work is thematically linked by a sense of desperation and distaste with life.   After the Final No: Samuel Beckett's Trilogy. By Thomas J. Cousineau. Cranbury, NJ: University of Delaware Press; London: Associated University Presses. pp. [pound] Thomas Cousineau's latest work focuses on the trilogy of novels Beckett wrote in the middle phase of his career, entitled Molloy, Malone Dies, and The Unnamable.

    Ohio Impromptu is a "playlet" by Samuel Beckett.. Written in English in , it began as a favour to S.E. Gontarski, who requested a dramatic piece to be performed at an academic symposium in Columbus, Ohio in honour of Beckett’s seventy-fifth birthday. Beckett was uncomfortable writing to order and struggled with the piece for nine months before it was ready.   Beckett, Samuel et al.

    Dream of Fair to Middling Women is Samuel Beckett’s first novel. Written in English "in a matter of weeks" in when Beckett was only 26 and living in Paris, the clearly autobiographical novel was rejected by publishers and shelved by the author. The novel was eventually published in , three years after the author's : Samuel Beckett. Looking for a guy who represents the shift from modernism to postmodernism? You've found him in Samuel Beckett. He may have been a pal of James Joyce (who was one of modernism's head honchos), but from onwards, Beckett started to focus more and more on the failings of modernism, art, and language as a type of expression.
