‘Mix a powerful imagination with a logic in absurdum, and the result

will be either a paradox or an Irishman. If it is an Irishman, you will

get the paradox into the bargain. Even the Nobel Prize in Literature

is sometimes divided. Paradoxically, this has happened in 1969, a single

award being addressed to one man, two languages and a third nation,

itself divided.’

Presentation speech by Karl Ragnar Gierow, of the Swedish Academy

Breath
  • 'Breath' was written in response to Kenneth Tynan's request for a piece for his show Oh! Calcutta! at New York's Eden Theatre on 16 June 1969. It lasts less than a minute
  • The text was originally published in 'Gambit', Vol. 4, No. 16 (1970). At the time, it was considered as the culmination of Beckett's work

The farther he goes the more good it does me. I don't want philosophies, tracts, dogmas, creeds, ways out, truths, answers, nothing from the bargain basement. He is the most courageous, remorseless writer going and the more he grinds my nose in the shit the more I am grateful to him. He's not f---ing me about, he's not leading me up any garden path, he's not slipping me a wink, he's not flogging me a remedy or a path or a revelation or a basinful of breadcrumbs, he's not selling me anything I don't want to buy — he doesn't give a bollock whether I buy or not — he hasn't got his hand over his heart. Well, I'll buy his goods, hook, line and sinker, because he leaves no stone unturned and no maggot lonely. He brings forth a body of beauty. His work is beautiful. Harold Pinter
