Every writer has something which only they can say and most spend their lives struggling to say it. Sometimes it is difficult to sing in your own voice; more often than not, no one wants to listen or they want a different melody. Beckett, like everyone else, came up against this, but he never capitulated. He stuck to his guns and, ultimately, people learned how to listen.
