Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett ( Visual )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two men in a timeless setting are engaged in a perpetual, pointless entertainment that parodies the human condition. Beckett's characters are often in pairs tied together by need, like master and slave or husband and wife. The entity of Godot can be seen as any form of transcendental meaning or purpose to life and it is significant that this entity is never manifested. Vladimir and Estragon are entertained as they wait by Pozzo and Lucky and storytelling becomes a means of passing time. Uncertainty is clearly the only certainty and the banal, everyday language in their exchanges takes on a universal significance. Beckett once said "All that matters is the laugh and the tear" and it is these extreme manifestations of emotion that he uses to portray the human condition. Beckett's best known play, Waiting for Godot is a finely wrought tragicomedy exploring the battle between the futility of life and the fundamental human desire to survive
