Eugene Ionesco was born in 1912. He had a French mother and a Romanian father. In France, where he lived most of his life, Ionesco claimed to have had an incomparible changing experience.

The strange representation of euphoric peace with meaningless reality unconsciously influenced his life and work in the future.

Manet uses thick and rough brushstrokes which is evident on the sheets which look unfinished.

Camus attempts in exploring the aspect of absurdism by describing Meursault’s murder of the Arabs.
