Publisher Description

1. INTRODUCTION Irish playwright Samuel Beckett's play Waiting for Godot is primarily a play about human suffering involved in human existence. In this outstanding play of absurdity, two tamps Estragon and Vladimir are trapped in their commitment of waiting for a certain Mr. Godot, a person they believe will alleviate their boredom and save them from the chaos of life and restore the order of their social status. As Beckett often focused on the idea of "the suffering of being", he portrays human condition as a period of suffering which is an inevitable part of human existence. Human condition is characteristic of suffering from such misfortunes as meaningless waiting, disillusionment of hope, abnormal relationship between themselves and with others, the meaninglessness and helplessness of their lives, their tragic fate before God, and their fear of death. It seems that Beckett tries to reveal all the evils, sins, unfairness, and disasters that exist and are happening all the time in this world and that human beings would not be able to avoid encountering them during their life time, from the beginning to the end.
