Samuel Beckett was born in which country?
Samuel Barclay Beckett (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 English and French.
Beckett's work offers a bleak, tragicomic outlook on human existence, often coupled with black comedy and gallows humor, and became increasingly minimalist in his later career. He is considered one of the last modernist writers, and one of the key figures in what Martin Esslin called the "Theatre of the Absurd."
Samuel Beckett was born in Dublin on Good Friday, 13 April 1906, to William Frank Beckett (1871-1933), a quantity surveyor and descendant of the Huguenots, and Maria Jones Roe, a nurse.
