The French playwright Jean Anouilh (1910-1987) was an                     
accomplished craftsman. His plays, from the frivolous and                 
fanciful to the serious, exploit the artificiality of the                 
theater to elucidate his views of the human predicament.                   
His works, which include Le Voyageur sans Baggage (1938), Antigone (1946), 
and Beckett (1959), often contrast fantasy with harsh reality
