Present Past, Past Present: A Personal Memoir

Author(s): Eugene Ionesco

Performing Arts Drama Plays

Eugene Ionesco (1910-1994), a Romanian-born Frenchman, was central to the Theater of the Absurd, a dramatic movement that abandons logical plot development, meaningful dialogue, and intelligible characters, and instead embraces anarchic comedy to convey the meaninglessness of modern man's existence in a universe ruled by chance. Ionesco's many works include: plays like "The Bald Soprano, The Chairs, The Killer, Exit the King, " and more than two dozen others; theater criticism (collected in "Notes and Counter Notes"); and this memoir, which critics have compared in spirit and vision to Pascal's "Pensees, " Milan Kundera's "Book of Laughter and Forgetting," and Kafka's diaries.
