Summary Samuel Beckett produced some of the most powerful writing - some of the funniest but most devastating - of the twentieth century. He described his plays, prose and poetry as 'an unnecessary stain on the silence', but the extraordinary combination of concision and richness in his writing stems from his peculiar sensitivity to the sounds and rhythms of words. Moreover, music forms a part of Beckett's comic aesthetics of failure: it plays a role in his exploration of the possibilities and failures of the imagination, and the ever-failing attempt to forge a sense of self. No wonder, then, that so.
