There are also indications in his correspondence that he found the work of writers such as Thomas Hardy or T. F. 28 Beckett the man could be excellent company, often brilliantly witty. It was difficult to be with him for more than a few moments without laughter joining you as a third guest at the dinner table. 29 Few photographs reveal this transformation, for having his photograph taken was no laughing matter for Samuel Beckett. He tolerated it for the sake of his friends or as a minimal concession to publicity for the sake of the theatre or the production.

Comparatively few writers have managed this feat successfully. One thinks, of course, of Conrad, Nabokov, and Ionesco. But examples are thin on the ground. Beckett studied French and Italian at Trinity College and, after graduating, he taught himself German, with some help from his younger cousin, Morris Sinclair. Studying several different languages helped him to achieve a greater objectivity and a more critical attitude with respect to his mother tongue. ’42 And so, a year later, he experimented with writing a number of poems in French that were simpler, more direct, less extravagantly erudite than the earlier English poems of the previous decade (with one exception, ‘Cascando’, written in 1936).

The misery and solitude and apathy and the sneers were the elements of an index of superiority and guaranteed the feeling of arrogant ‘otherness’, which seemed as right and natural and as little morbid as the ways in which it was not so much expressed as implied and reserved and kept available for a possible utterance in the future. It was not until that way of living, or rather negation of living, developed such terrifying physical symptoms that it could no longer be pursued, that I became aware of anything morbid in myself.
