Samuel Barclay Beckett, the Irish writer, playwright, theatre director, and poet, was known for his bleak writing. His works were tragi-comedies that expressed a darker outlook on existence and life experiences.

Even though Beckett was Irish, he was a resident of Paris for most of his adult life; and he wrote in both French and English.

His best-known work is Waiting for Godot, a play from 1953 where two characters, Vladimir (Didi) and Estragon (Gogo), engage in philosophical discussions and have several weird encounters with other characters while waiting for Godot, who never arrives.
