Irish dramatist and novelist Samuel Beckett received the 1969 Nobel Prize in Literature for his highly acclaimed body of work, including the play Waiting for Godot, his best-known work and a staple of the modern stage. Half a century after it was first published, the play is considered the forerunner of the plays of Ionesco, Pinter, Stoppard, and others.
