Eugène Ionesco, born Eugen Ionescu, (1909 – 1994) was a

French-Romanian playwright, poet, novelist and a literary critic.

He is considered as one of the foremost playwrights of the Theatre

of the Absurd. Beyond ridiculing the most banal situations,

Ionesco's plays depict the solitude of humans and the

insignificance of one's existence. Among his works, it is worth

mentioning the plays La Cantatrice chauve (The Bald

Soprano), La Leçon (The Lesson), Les

Chaises (The Chairs) and Rhinocéros

(Rhinoceros).
