ANALYSIS OF WAITING FOR GODOT From the surface Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett is just sixty pages of gibberish and disorganization centered around two men that waiting for someone to show up But when the story is analyzed and is looked at piece by piece this two act play begins to take shape and illustrate many different truths of the everyday world Under the fragmented information left by Beckett the theme that one cant just sit around and wait emerges to the surface Another theme which is free to be taken when this play is dissected is the mockery made of religion Through the disorganized rubbish left by Samuel Beckett the themes that one can not just sit around and wait and the idea that religion is a joke emerge in Waiting for Godot The main theme that is uncovered under the ambiguous dialogue of the play is that one can just sit around and wait one has to become self sufficient Throughout the play Vladimir and Estragon are awaiting with nothing to do for the arrival of a person with the name Godot so he can give them the answers to the reasons unknown as Lucky puts it Vladimir and Estragon do not go out looking for Godot at all nor will they do anything that will relocate them in fear that they might miss Godots answers and their world would stay unfinished Evidently this person does not show up at all even though Godots messenger the boy tells Vladimir and Estragon that Godot will show up tomorrow This just goes to show that one goes no where as Vladimir and Estragon do when one just sits around and waits Vladimir and Estragon are left just like they are in the beginning of the play with their questions still unanswered and still waiting for these answers to come In other words the time spent by Vladimir and Estragon is a waste
