Existentialism, absurdity, and waiting as a core element in samuel beckett’s waiting for godot


Teenu Tony

'Waiting for Godot” written by Samuel Beckett is one of the most spectacular plays in English language and has strong undercurrents of the tenets of Existentialism and Absurdity. It is in this respect that the paper unfolds the mystery of existentialism, absurdity and 'waiting' as a central element of the play. The thematic exploration of waiting as a core element is the prime focus of the study. Alongside it also taps into the instances wherein the play speaks loud of traces of existentialism and absurdity. The paper also studies the playwright's effort to shadow the advance of modernity by exploring a world full of counter narratives, meaninglessness, lack of identity and subversion of morals.
