Eugéne Ionesco

Data de nascimento: 26. Novembro 1909
Data de falecimento: 28. Março 1994

Eugène Ionesco foi um dos maiores patafísicos e dramaturgos do teatro do absurdo. Para lá de ridicularizar as situações mais banais, as peças de Ionesco retratam de uma forma tangível a solidão do ser humano e a insignificância da sua existência.

Filho de pai romeno e mãe francesa, Ionesco passou a maior parte da infância na França, mas no princípio da adolescência regressou à Roménia onde se formou como professor de francês e casou em 1936. Em 1928, na Universidade de Bucareste, conheceu Emile Cioran e Mircea Eliade, e os três tornaram-se amigos de toda a vida.

Regressou à França em 1938 para concluir a sua tese de doutoramento. Apanhado pela eclosão da guerra, em 1939, Ionesco permaneceu em França, acabando por revelar-se escritor de talento. Foi eleito membro da Académie Française em 1970.

Morreu aos 81 anos e está sepultado no Cemitério do Montparnasse, em Paris.

„Perhaps there will be a morning of grace for humanity. Perhaps there will be a morning of grace for me.“

—  Eugéne Ionesco, livro The Hermit
Context: I thought that it was strange to assume that it was abnormal for anyone to be forever asking questions about the nature of the universe, about what the human condition really was, my condition, what I was doing here, if there was really something to do. It seemed to me on the contrary that it was abnormal for people not to think about it, for them to allow themselves to live, as it were, unconsciously. Perhaps it's because everyone, all the others, are convinced in some unformulated, irrational way that one day everything will be made clear. Perhaps there will be a morning of grace for humanity. Perhaps there will be a morning of grace for me. The Hermit (1973)

„You know, the Cathars believed that the world was not created by God but by a demon who had stolen a few technological secrets from Him and made this world — which is why it doesn’t work.“

—  Eugéne Ionesco
The Paris Review interview (1984), Context: You know, the Cathars believed that the world was not created by God but by a demon who had stolen a few technological secrets from Him and made this world — which is why it doesn’t work. I don’t share this heresy. I’m too afraid! But I put it in a play called This Extraordinary Brothel, in which the protagonist doesn’t talk at all. There is a revolution, everybody kills everybody else, and he doesn’t understand. But at the very end, he speaks for the first time. He points his finger towards the sky and shakes it at God, saying, “You rogue! You little rogue!” and he bursts out laughing. He understands that the world is an enormous farce, a canular played by God against man, and that he has to play God’s game and laugh about it. canular refers to hoaxes, humorous deceptions.

„No society has been able to abolish human sadness, no political system can deliver us from the pain of living, from our fear of death, our thirst for the absolute. It is the human condition that directs the social condition, not vice versa.“

—  Eugéne Ionesco
Context: I believe that what separates us all from one another is simply society itself, or, if you like, politics. This is what raises barriers between men, this is what creates misunderstanding. If I may be allowed to express myself paradoxically, I should say that the truest society, the authentic human community, is extra-social — a wider, deeper society, that which is revealed by our common anxieties, our desires, our secret nostalgias. The whole history of the world has been governed by nostalgias and anxieties, which political action does no more than reflect and interpret, very imperfectly. No society has been able to abolish human sadness, no political system can deliver us from the pain of living, from our fear of death, our thirst for the absolute. It is the human condition that directs the social condition, not vice versa. "A Reply to Kenneth Tynan: The Playwright's Role" in The Observer (29 June 1958)

„There were no longer words being spoken, but images being visualized. We achieved it above all by the dislocation of language. … Beckett destroys language with silence. I do it with too much language, with characters talking at random, and by inventing words.“

—  Eugéne Ionesco
The Paris Review interview (1984), Context: Beckett shows death; his people are in dustbins or waiting for God. (Beckett will be cross with me for mentioning God, but never mind.) Similarly, in my play The New Tenant, there is no speech, or rather, the speeches are given to the Janitor. The Tenant just suffocates beneath proliferating furniture and objects — which is a symbol of death. There were no longer words being spoken, but images being visualized. We achieved it above all by the dislocation of language. … Beckett destroys language with silence. I do it with too much language, with characters talking at random, and by inventing words.

„It won’t matter to me at all whether the Church canonizes him or not. The important thing is that such a man existed.“

—  Eugéne Ionesco
The Paris Review interview (1984), Context: It’s a play about the life and martyrdom of a modern saint, who has just been canonized by the Church — or is it beatified? Which comes first? I’m not sure. Anyway, his name was Father Maximilian Kolbe, a Pole, and he died in Auschwitz. They were going to send some prisoners to a mine, where they would die of hunger and thirst. Father Kolbe offered to go instead of a man who had a wife and children and didn’t want to die. That man is still alive. … It won’t matter to me at all whether the Church canonizes him or not. The important thing is that such a man existed.
