Publicidade

Samuel Beckett foi um dramaturgo e escritor irlandês.

Beckett é amplamente considerado como um dos escritores mais influentes do século XX. Fortemente influenciado por James Joyce, ele é considerado um dos últimos modernistas. Como inspiração para muitos escritores posteriores, ele às vezes também é considerado um dos primeiros pós-modernistas. Ele é um dos escritores fundamentais, no que Martin Esslin chamou de "Teatro do absurdo". Seu trabalho tornou-se cada vez mais minimalista em sua carreira mais tarde.

Recebeu o Nobel de Literatura de 1969. Utiliza nas suas obras, traduzidas em mais de trinta línguas, uma riqueza metafórica imensa, privilegiando uma visão pessimista acerca do fenômeno humano. É considerado um dos principais autores do denominado teatro do absurdo. Sua obra mais famosa tanto no Brasil como em Portugal é a peça Esperando Godot.

„I simply do not know, perhaps shall never know.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: What I assert, deny, question, in the present, I still can. But mostly I shall use the various tenses of the past. For mostly I do not know, it is perhaps no longer so, it is too soon to know, I simply do not know, perhaps shall never know.

„What they were most determined for me to swallow was my fellow creatures. In this they were without mercy.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: What they were most determined for me to swallow was my fellow creatures. In this they were without mercy. I remember little or nothing of these lectures. I cannot have understood a great deal. But I seem to have retained certain descriptions, in spite of myself. They gave me courses on love, on intelligence, most precious, most precious. They also taught me to count, and even to reason. Some of this rubbish has come in handy on occasions, I don’t deny it, on occasions which would never have arisen if they had left me in peace. I use it still, to scratch my arse with.

„What a joy to know where one is, and where one will stay, without being there. Nothing to do but stretch out comfortably on the rack, in the blissful knowledge you are nobody for all eternity.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: What a joy to know where one is, and where one will stay, without being there. Nothing to do but stretch out comfortably on the rack, in the blissful knowledge you are nobody for all eternity. A pity I should have to give tongue at the same time, it prevents it from bleeding in peace, licking the lips.

„To decompose is to live too, I know, I know, don't torment me, but one sometimes forgets.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: To decompose is to live too, I know, I know, don't torment me, but one sometimes forgets. And of that life too I shall tell you perhaps one day, the day I know that when I thought I knew I was merely existing and that passion without form or stations will have devoured me down to the rotting flesh itself and that when I know that I know nothing, am only crying out as I have always cried out, more or less piercingly, more or less openly. Let me cry out then, it's said to be good for you. Yes let me cry out, this time, then another time perhaps, then perhaps a last time.

„For had I been able to conceive something worse than what I had I would have known no peace until I got it, if I know anything about myself.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: Anything worse than what I do, without knowing what, or why, I have never been able to conceive, and that doesn’t surprise me, for I never tried. For had I been able to conceive something worse than what I had I would have known no peace until I got it, if I know anything about myself.

„It means what it says.“
