BECKETT, Samuel. Come and Go. A Dramaticule. Illustrated. London: Calder and Boyars, 1967. First edition. pp. 10. Grey buckram, upper cover ruled in gilt with title and author. Edition limited to 100 copies (64) signed by the author. A fine copy in slipcase.Samuel Beckett, poet, novelist, and dramatist was born in Foxrock, County Dublin in 1906. He was educated at Portora Royal School, Enniskillen and later at T.C.D. In 1928 he taught French at Campbell College, Belfast, before moving to Paris as a lecteur d'anglais at the École Normale Supérieure. It was here that he met through his friendship with Thomas MacGreevy, James Joyce, whose daughter Lucia grew infatuated with him. One of the major figures of modern Irish literature, Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1969. The following year the Collected Works was published in New York: his characters search, in vain, for meaning and identity, undergoing a purgatorial suffering in the process. His work is steeped in the Bible, Dante and Pascal: but he also draws upon Irish writers such as Berkeley, Swift, Mangan, Yeats and Joyce.
