Clegg on Beckett


Nick Clegg’s hero is Samuel Beckett.

My first encounter with Beckett was when I was studying in Minnesota and I acted in a student production of Krapp’s Last Tape. Back then I remember images of Beckett making as great an impression on me as his work. He always looked so impressive – that beak-like nose, eyes staring dead into the camera – and he had an austerity to him, even when he was young, that makes it very easy to connect the man to the words.
