    People say that there is nothing like the smell and the feel of a brand new car. Lucky for me at the age of nineteen I was fortunate enough to find that out for myself. After working to save seventeen hundred dollars my mom and I drove to the Honda dealer to go get the car of my dreams. There it was, either it seemed like they knew I was coming, or everywhere I looked the car was there. A black on black coupe EX Honda Civic, power locks, power windows, sunroof, alloy wheels, and the best part was that it was a stick shift.

    “Nothing happens. Nobody comes, nobody goes. It's awful.” This quote extracted from Waiting for Godot, an absurdist play by Samuel Beckett that premiered on 5 January 1953, holds the essence of absurdist theatre and what its playwrights seek to express- the inescapable meaningless and futility of life. The origins of absurdist theatre are commonly linked to the avant-garde experimentations of the 19th century, but there has been speculation that there were traces of absurdist theatre in works…

    though it is one of the 20th century great works yet the events somehow repeat itself . But such repetition is to serve the main purpose of the play; the endless wait experience with all its psychological and emotional ups and downs. So, one can trace the events and understand it, yet there is no real connection in the play. 7- Characterization: Beckett always averts to clarify and explain more about his characters beyond what is written by him in Waiting For Godot(1953).

    Hamlet and when the scene is finished Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are left baffled and resume seemingly insignificant dialogue. In Waiting for Godot the metatheatre high action periods occur during the episodes of Pozzo and Lucky’s master-slave relationship. Writer Ken Mayer’s argued that these metatheatre episodes “arose ‘pity and terror’ (both in Vladimir and Estragon as well as the audience)”because we all desire to be like Pozzo and fear to be like Lucky.” It is also interesting to note…

    INTRODUCTION Pinter’s first phase of writing is categorized into the Theatre of the Absurd which reflects the individuals’ concerns in the mundane world. The Absurd dramatists attempt to show the vivid reflection of the modern man and his bewilderment in their dramatic oeuvres by applying some specific elements.

    character of ‘Godot’. The audience or the readers do not know who ‘Godot’ is. The identity of ‘Godot’ remains uncertain throughout the play. Many critics assume that ‘Godot’ can actually mean ‘God’ however, Beckett strongly denies of this assumption of ‘Godot’ referring ‘God’. The uncertainty of the plot can also be seen where Vladimir pretends not to recognize Pozzo and Lucky in the first act.
