Theatre of the Absurd' is a term coined by the theatre critic and scholar Martin Esslin for the work of many dramatists, mainly written in the 1950s and 1960s. The idea absurd actually means that something has gone out of harmony, for instance, in the music, whereas in everyday speech it just means that something is absurd. However, matching to Eugene Ionesco, 'the Absurd' refers to something purposeless. 'Slice off from his religious, metaphysical and transcendent origins, man is lost; all his actions become senseless, absurd, useless'. This philosophical process hails from Albert Camus, a French novelist and dramatist. He said, 'in a universe that is all of the sudden deprived of illusions and of light, man feels a stranger. ' The Theatre of the Absurd was strongly inspired by the inhuman, destroying occasions of the World Warfare II.
