Arthur Adamov was a French playwright, one of the foremost exponents of the Theatre of the Absurd. Adamov was born in Kislovodsk in Russia to a wealthy Armenian family, which lost its wealth in 1917. In common with many other wealthy Russians of the time, Adamov was brought up with French as his first language, and in 1924 he moved to Paris. In Paris Adamov met surrealists and edited the surrealist journal Discontinuité. He began to write plays after World War II, with La Parodie being his first. His work, influenced by Bertolt Brecht, is often dream-like and later works in particular have a political element.
