Samuel Beckett's Quarters
45 rue d'Ulm
École Normale Supérieure

At this site of the École Normale Supérieure is where the famous Irish playwright/author of Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett, lived as he served as James Joyce's personal (albeit unpaid) gofer/secretary during the Ulysses years & while he taught at the École.

Tragically, Joyce's cherished daughter, Lucia fell into an unrequited love for Beckett and went mad because of it.

Nearby is the Chapelle Val-du-Grâce and the residences of Man Ray & Thornton Wilder.
