Waiting for Nothing; an Analysis of "Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett

September 2011

This essay examines the themes in Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett. It will analyse Beckett’s style and the writing technique that he used in his play. It will provide an interpretation of the play, mainly focusing on the habit and routine of the main characters, Estragon and Vladimir. The essence of their behaviour reflects the common situation in the human condition, and men’s despair at being unable to find a meaning for his existence. The miserable condition of life in the present, the constant effort to make it fruitful and the failure to succeed in this is portrayed in Waiting for Godot.
