English Annotated Reader: Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett.
Introduction by Paolo Bertinetti. Activities and notes by Brian Hodgkiss.
Undiscutably a mile stone in post-war theatre, Waiting for Godot has grealy influenced contemporary drama. Two tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, spend the whole play waiting in vain for the arrival of the mysterious Godot. Nothing happens. Only the arrival of Pozzo and Lucky breaks the endless wait for Godot.
Vladimir and Estragon's ignorance, fear and desperation represent Beckett's view of the human condition.
