Waiting for Godot
Waiting for Godot is basically a play written in two acts, by Samuel Beckett. It was originally written in French, back in 1948; however, Beckett translated it into English himself. It has been voted as the Most Significant English Language Play of the 20th century. The English version of the play is subtitled as 'a tragicomedy in two acts'. The world premiere of this play was held at the Left Bank Theater of Babylon in Paris, on the 5th of January, 1953. Then in 1955 it produced in Londond, and in 1956 in the United States of America. Since then, the play has been produced worldwide. Waiting for Godot slowly gained appreciation, and soon became the talk of the town.
The basic story of the play revolves around two characters that are waiting for a person named Godot, a third character who never shows up. It is a very intense play. As Waiting for Godot is a play, Beckett takes liberty in expressing many of the themes and ideas that he had discussed previously in his other writings, and dramatizes them in a more forceful manner in this.
The characters include:
Vladimir:One of the two main characters. He is called Didi by Estragon, the other main character, and is addressed as Mr. Albert by another character. His life is not short on troubles and discomforts, just like Estragon's, but Vladimir's concerns are not mundane like his, as he ponders on religious or philosophical subjects. Nonetheless, he seems like a more responsible and a mature character as compared to Estragon.
Estragon:He is the second main character, and is called Gogo, by Vladimir. Estragon posses a weak personality and always wants Vladimir's protection. He is a very poor man, and appears to be like a beggar due to his dressing, and is basically concerned with physical issues such as hunger and sleep. He has a short memory and tends to sleep and dream very often.
Pozzo: He is the character who bypasses Vladimir and Estragon while they are standing under a tree and waiting for the character Godot. Pozzo offers entertainment to the two men. However, in the Act II, Pozzo is blind and cannot recall his memory on meeting Vladimir and Estragon the night before.
Lucky: He is the one carrying Pozzo's bags and stool as he is his slave. He is entertaining Vladimir and Estragon in the first act, but is dumb in the second act.
Boy: A character that appears each time in the play to inform Vladimir and Estragon that Godot will not be coming that night, and insists that he had not shown up last night, in the second act.
Godot: The person, whom Vladimir and Estragon are waiting to meet, but he never appears in the whole play. Both, his name and character is thought to refer to God, which has had a great impact on the title and theme of the play, altering its title and subject to Waiting for Godot.
Now let us shed some light on the summary of the whole play. There are two men, Vladimir and Estragon, who meet near a tree. They start a conversation on different topics, and come to a point when they realize that both of them are waiting for the same man, Godot. While Vladimir and Estragon are waiting for Godot, two other men enter the scene, known as Pozzo and Lucky. Pozzo is going to the market to sell his slave Lucky, but he stops by Vladimir and Estragon to converse, and provides entertainment to the two by asking Lucky to dance for them. Soon after, Pozzo and Lucky take a leave. Then another character enters, known as the boy, who tells Vladimir that he is Godot's messenger. He tells Vladimir that Godot will not be coming tonight, but would come tomorrow for sure. After Vladimir has asked a few questions regarding Godot from the boy, he leaves, but Vladimir and Estragon do not, although they had decided to leave, and the curtains fall.
Vladimir and Estragon meet again near the same tree the following night. Both of them wait for Godot again, when Pozzo and Lucky enter once more. This time, Pozzo has lost his sight, and Lucky has gone dumb. Pozzo cannot recall his memory to meet these two men last night, and he leaves with Lucky, while, Vladimir and Estragon keep on waiting for Godot to come. Soon, the boy enters again and tells the two men that Godot will not come today, and insists that he did not meet or speak to Vladimir the day before. After the boy's departure, Vladimir and Estragon decide to leave, but once again, they do not move an inch, and the curtain falls and the play ends.
