    A Man In A Jar On A Bar

    A few years ago  the Samuel Beckett Academic Circus rolled into my town for the (I think) Centenary of his birth.  The town has some tenuous link via SB's relationship with Julia Joyce (James's sister who was in the 'Sanatorium' here) and he'd played a bit of cricket too...

    Beckett's Philosophy

    This, I fear, is one of the more 'elite' groups on this site!  However, for the few of you out there who declare a loe for Sam there is something I wish to share.   I hae recently completed a monologue on Beckett's philosophy (several thousand words).  I...

    It's A Christmas Cracker!

    Cheap crackerjack jokes I get to read out with my yellow painted crown of absurdity riding high on my unkempt hair.‘Who was voted the best dressed in the ocean?...  The swordfish, of course, who always looks sharp.’But then, a surprise, a quote from Beckett -“Ever Tried...

    More About Samuel Beckett

    At the beginning of the Five Year Plan(1937-1944) of the North American Baha’i community, a Plan I am confident that the Irish novelist and playwright Samuel Beckett(1906-1989) knew nothing about---but one whose extension into a series of Plans of the international Baha'i...

    Simply the Greatest

    Oh, it's easy to say why I loe Samuel Beckett.  As a person he was remakable.  Warm, scrupulous to a fault, loyal and with more integrity than any other person I know.  It almost goes without saying that he was a war hero too.  Worked with the French...

    Beckett's Genius

    'Waiting for Godot' was one of our Theatre Studies must-reads, and I cannot tell you how thankful I am that I read it. It opened up my eyes to a completely knew way of thinking, of receiving information, of comedy, of tragedy and of acting. In my experience there are people who...

    Fail Better; Feel Better

    I am so pleased that this group already exists!  I've only ever been inspired to read one biography in my life:  Damned to Fame by James Knowles.  Beckett is one of the greatest humanitarians the world has known.
