"Waiting for Godot" is all about how the world is based on chance.

The two main characters, Vladimir and Estragon, spend all their time sitting by a tree waiting for someone named Godot, whose identity is never revealed to the audience.

Godot helps to give the two tramps in Waiting for Godot a sense of purpose.

Alfred Prufrock Life is occupied by waiting. In Waiting for Godot, Samuel Becket presents the suffering of the human condition. Godot is about two beings who talk about nothing, experience the drudgery of life, complain that they do not do anything, meet a few people, think about hanging themselves, and then do it all over again. The existentialist style by Godot is comparable to T.S.


They are still waiting for Godot.

"Waiting for Godot" is the classical, archetypical presentation of this facet of human existence.

Hence there is a cyclic, albeit indefinite, pattern to events in "Waiting for Godot." Vladimir and Estragon return to the same place each day to wait for Godot and experience the same general events with variations each time.

It is never clear whether Godot is real or not, which is why he is referred to as an example of a "nebulous force".

"Waiting for Godot" is a play that captures this feeling and view of the world, and characterizes it with archetypes that symbolize humanity and its behaviour when faced with this knowledge.

Samuel Beckett, through his play Waiting for Godot, affirms Sartre’s core argument.

Most of the time we attempt to distract ourselves from the issue and try desperately to bring some sort of meaning into our life while silently waiting for someone or something to come and give us an answer....

These sickly rewards are the ones given to men, theorizes Samuel Beckett in Waiting for Godot, when they wait for the arrival of God.

Surfacely, the recurrent setting is absurd: Vladimir and Estragon remain in the same non-specified place and wait for Godot, who never shows, day after day. They partake in this activity, this waiting, during both Act I and Act II, and we are led to infer that...

The two merely sit and wait; they wait for a man, perhaps a savior, named Godot.

Mrs Warren's Profession in particular was censored and seen as immoral for its portrayal of prostitution and incest, whereas Waiting for Godot was met with general bafflement and debate on dramatic technique.
