B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Samuel (Barclay) Beckett (1906-1989) Irish novelist and playwright, one of the great names of Absurd Theatre with , although recent study regards Beckett as postmodernist. His plays are concerned with human suffering and survival, and his characters are struggling with meaninglessness and the world of the Nothing. Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. In his writings for the theater Beckett showed influence of burlesque, vaudeville, the music hall, commedia dell'arte, and the silent-film style of such figures as Keaton and Chaplin. "We all are born mad. Some remain so." (from Waiting for Godot James Joyce , taking dictation and copying down parts of what would eventually become Finnegans Wake (1939). He also translated a fragment of the book into French under Joyce's supervision. In 1931 Beckett returned to Dublin and received his M.A. in 1931. He taught French at Trinity College until 1932, when he resigned to devote his time entirely to writing. After his father died, Beckett received an annuity that enabled him to settle in London, where he underwent psychoanalysis (1935-36). As a poet Beckett made his debut in 1930 with WHOROSCOPE, a ninety-eight-line poem accompanied by seventeen footnotes. In this dramatic monologue, the protagonist, Rene Descartes, waits for his morning omelet of well-aged eggs, while meditating on the obscurity of theological mysteries, the passage of time, and the approach of death. It was followed with a collection of essays, PROUST (1931), and novel MORE PRICKS THAN KICKS (1934). From 1933 to 1936 he lived in London. In 1938 he was hospitalized from a stab would he had received from a pimp to whom he had refused to give money. Around this time he met Suzanne Dechevaux-Dumesnil, a piano student, whom he married in 1961. Beckett's career as a novelist really began in 1938 with MURPHY, which depicted the protagonist's inner struggle between his desires for his prostitute-mistress and for total escape into the darkness of mind. The conflict is resolved when he is atomized by a gas explosion.

from Waiting for Godot The Irish-born playwright and novelist Samuel Beckett , b. Dublin, Apr. 13, 1906, d. Dec. 22, 1989, is best known for the absurdist drama Waiting for Godot (1952; Eng. trans., 1954). First performed in Paris on Jan. 5, 1953, the play received worldwide acclaim and became the first of a series of critical successes, some of them written earlier. Life Beckett came from a Protestant Anglo-Irish family, but much of his work was first written in French. After graduating with a degree in Romance languages from Trinity College, Dublin, Beckett spent two years (1928-30) in Paris as an exchange lecturer. Here he met James Joyce and became a member of his circle. In 1930, Beckett returned to Trinity as a lecturer. The academic life did not agree with him, however, and he left after only four terms to become a free-lance writer. He traveled in Europe and England, settling finally in Paris, his intermittent home since 1937. Writings Beckett's entire literary output, the narrative prose as well as the dramatic works, reduces basic existential problems to their most essential features. Thus his concerns are fundamental, but never simplisticthe evanescence of life; time and eternity; the individual's sense of loneliness and alienation as a result of the impossibility of establishing genuine communication and contact with others; the mystery of self.

Ist nicht Morton Beckett...Samuel Feldman...?
eine Annäherung an eine Mutmaßung von Hans-Peter Jahn
Mit einer gewissen Sturheit will die Musikologie noch immer Samuel Becketts Einzigartigkeit aufgehoben und resonierend in der Musik Morton Feldmans verstanden wissen. Die Indizien dafür sind bekannt, fast abgestanden wie unbewegliches Gewässer, lachend vor sich hinstinkend. Feldmans Musik sei, ohne etwas zu sein. Eine Musik ohne Anfang und Ende, absichtslos, verstrickt in die eigenen Strickmuster, ins Gewebe der irrationalen, sich minutiös wandelnden Tonhöhen und Rhythmen. Eine Musik, deren Bewegungslosigkeit in stetiger Bewegung aufgelöst scheint, die zur Statik verdonnert ist, ohne zu lärmen und dennoch durchzuckt zu sein von Blitzen.
Feldmans Musik hingegen ganz in der Nichttradition amerikanisch. Sie verbaut in der Stille mit Stille der Zeit ihre Attraktivität und sucht darin der "Langeweile" ein Domizil. Bei aller gründlichen Untersuchung solcherart relativer Oberflächlichkeiten im Werk Morton Feldmans bleibt eines außer acht, vielleicht das Wesentliche seiner Musik ... nämlich ihre Wirkung auf den einzelnen. Kaum je eine andere Musik kann so wenig kollektiv gehört, geschweige denn beurteilt werden. Der Hörer ist in ihr allein, ihr ausgeliefert, manches Mal sogar der eigenen Peinlichkeit, wenn bei besonders langen Stücken die Geduld reißt und die Ermüdung durch die Reihen der restlichen Versenkten störend wankt. Antipathie der Musik Feldmans gegenüber provoziert bei anderen - auch bei seinen Gegnern - sofort Sympathie. Das ist bei ihm wie ein Naturgesetz. Wer auf diese Musik schimpft, hat nicht nur Gegner, sondern stigmatisiert sich in seinem intellektuell-musikalischen Anspruch.

AUTHOR Beckett was born in Foxrock, Dublin. He would later insist that he was born on Good Friday,13 April 1906, although his birth certficate puts the date a month later. The Becketts were of French Huguenot descent and, after a distinguished career at Trinity College, Dublin, he was to spend much of his life in France. His cricketing prowess earned him a mention in Wisden (the only Nobel Prize winner there), while he topped his year in modern languages. In 1928, he was appointed to an exchange lectureship in Paris, where he met and helped James Joyce before returning to TCD in 1930. A critical study of Marcel Proust (1931) pointed to an academic career, but Beckett chose to become a full-time writer. He travelled widely, living rather precariously, before settling in Montparnasse in Paris in 1937. His comic novel Murphy was published in 1938. He also met Suzanne Dumesnil, when she helped him to hospital after a street stabbing; they were to marry in 1961. Beckett was in Dublin at the outbreak of World War II, but 'preferred France at war to Ireland at peace'. He worked for the French Resistance, narrowly escaped the Gestapo, then moved to unoccupied France, where he wrote his novel

Isn't Morton beckett samuel Feldman ? Morton Beckett and SamuelFeldman would certainly have felt at ease with this paradox.
[Morton Feldman Page] [List of Texts]
Isn't Morton Beckett...Samuel Feldman...?
A tentative assumption by Hans-Peter Jahn
It is with a certain degree of stubbornness that musicology insists that Samuel Beckett's uniqueness is not so unique after all but reflected in the music of Morton Feldman. The evidence is well known, stagnant almost like a pond, laughing and stinking, Feldman's music, it is alleged, is without being anything. A music without beginning or end, without intention, tied up in its own textures and patterns, in the tissue of irrational, minutely changing pitches and rhythms. A music whose immobility seems to be dissolved in constant movement, which is doomed to stasis without raging and yet seems to be shot through with flashes of lightning.
It is quite right, it is argued, that the esoteric gleam of this music surrenders itself to a circle of exegetes - just as the contrary is true as well: wildly gesticulating know-alls whose enmity Feldman in his life countered with thundering laughter and the mise-en-scène of his rather effective arrogance. He knew little and cared less about Europe's attitudes to music; and so he poured his undifferentiated and sometimes denigrating contempt on all compositions created in the countries of that continent, thus becoming a vulnerable attacker who attracted sympathy and antipathy alike. Perhaps his own übervater John Cage was too great a human being for Feldman to permit him to try and embody greatness in Europe all over again. Feldman had to lash out whenever he met European musical tradition. And there's something else. The installation of silence made him a saint, a wanderer in the desert. Whoever followed him on bare feet burned his soles in the permanent silence that Feldman - inspired by Webern - claimed for himself. This was his considerable misunderstanding - and that of his many apologists. Webern's silence was derived from the dialectics of contrast. It holds its own because its environment is almost always throbbing with brief

SAMUEL BARCLAY BECKETT (b. April 13?, 1906, Foxrock, County Dublin, Ire.d. Dec. 22, 1989, Paris, France), author, critic, and playwright, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1969. He wrote in both French and English and is perhaps best known for his plays, especially En attendant Godot Waiting for Godot
Major Works
Waiting for Godot : Existential playwright Samuel Beckett writes of the absurd in this tragic comedy of two old friends who are waiting for someone named Godot. Of course they don't know who he is, nor do they know anything about him (or It), but nonetheless, they are waiting for him. Witty and charming throughout, as well as non-sensical and of course absurd. Definitely a classic! This play also raises many theological and philosophical questions as to what Godot is, many speculate it is indeed God(ot?). It would seem to fit. Highly recommended for anyone interested in writing, plays and literature as well as existentialists. Endgame : Endgame, in its essence, is the peak ultimate of modern existential philosophy. In an era where the very importance of our existence is challenged perpetually by the knowledge that your lives are insignificant nothings endable with the flash of an A-Bomb, Endgame is one of the few pieces of fiction to bravely show us this new world. Hamm and Clov, the two characters, are frighteningly too close to being like us. The ideas of loneliness and insignificance that create such an interesting dynamic in Waiting For Godot (also a great read!!!) are taken to a substantially higher level here. The best part of the play, however, is the way in which it is so well written. It's not just a philosophy lecture but a living, breathing, fascinating peice of stagecraft.

El Sentido profundo de toda la obra literaria de Samuel Beckett, el Premio Nobel de Literatura de 1969, lo resume Pozzo en las últimas palabras que pronuncia en Esperando a Godot, antes de hacer mutis con Lucky en el segundo acto de la pieza: «Ellas paren a horcajadas sobre una tumba, la luz brilla un instante; luego, otra vez la noche.» La frase impresiona sin duda a Vladimiro, siempre metafísico, ya que la está rumiando un buen rato, mientras observa los tejemanejes inútiles de Estragón con las botas y contempla el sueño de su amigo, y no puede por menos de añadir una apostilla: «A horcajadas sobre una tumba y un parto difícil. Desde el fondo del agujero, ensoñadoramente, el sepulturero aplica los fórceps. Hay tiempo para envejecer. El aire está lleno de nuestros gritos.» Hace solo unos años, Samuel Beckett mismo dio forma teatral al resumen de Pozzo en un drama sin palabras ni actores

Beckett: "Aw now, I wouldn't go that far.."
About Samuel Beckett Samuel Beckett was born near Dublin, Ireland, on April 13, 1906 into a Protestant, middle class home. His father was a quantity surveyor and his mother worked as a nurse. At the age of 14 he was sent to the same school that Oscar Wilde attended. Beckett is known to have commented, "I had little talent for happiness." This was evidenced by his frequent bouts of depression, even as a young man. He often stayed in bed until late in the afternoon and hated long conversations. As a young poet he apparently rejected the advances of James Joyce's daughter and then commented that he did not have feelings that were human. This sense of depression would show up in much of his writing, especially in Waiting for Godot where it is a struggle to get through life.
