Waiting for Godot: Tragicomedy in 2 Acts

Front Cover
W. Ross MacDonald School Resource Services Library, 2020 - French drama
This volume is an absurdist play in which two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, wait endlessly and in vain for the arrival of someone named Godot. They claim he's an acquaintance but in fact hardly know him, admitting that they would not recognize him when they do see him. To occupy the time they eat, sleep, converse, argue, sing, play games, exercise, swap hats, and contemplate suicide -- anything "to hold the terrible silence at bay". Throughout the play, the audience may encounter religious, philosophical, classical, psychoanalytical, biographical, and especially wartime references
