Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett The story line revolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone—or something—named Godot. Vladimir and Estragon wait near a tree on a barren stretch of road, inhabiting a drama spun from their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes, and nonsense, which has been interpreted as a somber summation of mankind’s inexhaustible search for meaning. online free: www.samuel-beckett.net/Waiting_for_Godot_Part1.html
In "Waiting for Godot," Originally written in French, by Samuel Beckett, the main characters Vladimir and Estragon contemplate leaving and staying, but under the surface, they pose questions (and possibilities) about the meaning of life, God, and death.
6) Estragon often repeats himself, especially in moments of stichomythia with Vladimir. This shows how stuck Estragon is in his routine and how he is unable to escape the confines of what he thinks is his purpose. He shows an absurdist thought of believing in something other than himself to give his life meaning (Godot), which causes him to repeat the same day over and over, waiting for Godot to show.
