Enniskillen is not the most obvious venue for the International Beckett Festival (which began on July 31 and runs until this Sunday). The small town in County Fermanagh, now in Northern Ireland, where the teenage Beckett boarded at the Portora Royal School between 1920 and 1923, does not, on the face of it, appear to have exerted much hold on him.
Though Beckett was popular at Portora, prospering at his studies and excelling at sports, few will be surprised to learn, in the light of his later work and general disposition, that his schooldays were not an era of untrammelled joy. . .
