African American English: A Linguistic Introduction dN the evenings if notoing Bikram Yoga Soho Who wants to "See A Play In " a play nothing happens Who wants to see a play in which the characters make little or no sense Who wants to see a play in which the same senseless nothingness is repeated in the second and only other act Not me that s for sure I honestly Great Short Stories by African-American Writers don t think I could sit through a production of this but thatoesn t mean I can t appreciate its artistic merit on the page Nothing happens but that is the beauty of it A famous theatre reviewer once said this is a play in which nothing happens twice He was right of course but at the same time recognised the brilliance of the play The fact that nothing happens is the reason why this play is so clever and tragic The characters are stuck in this cycle of nothingness they are Drunk On Chocolate destined to spend eachay waiting for the mysterious entity known as Godot He never comes If nothingness Major Problems in African-American History: From Freedom to Freedom Now, 1865-1990s (Major Problems in American History Series) didn t happen twice then we as the audience would be unaware of this fact and conseuently be ignorant to the tragic brilliance of the play ESTRAGON I can t go on like thisVLADIMIR That s what you think Indeed the plot is bizarrely simple two men Vladimir and Estragon are simply waiting for Godot Theyon t remember why they are waiting or even who this Godot character is They just know "that they must wait Whilst they wait they encounter two eually as strange characters Pozzo and Lucky Lucky "they must wait Whilst they wait they encounter two eually as strange characters Pozzo and Lucky Lucky Pozzo s slave for no apparent reason and the two seem completely Academia dependent on each other like Vladimir and Estragon are themselves The four engage in a weird and perplexing conversation and then go about their business The next act is very similar to the first Beckett breaks the rules The play belongs to the absurdist theatre branch which challenges the conventions of the realism theatre of the ninetieth and early twentieth centuries itoes the exact opposite to what was considered a well made play The characters carry out a chain of repetitive and mundane A Beginner's Guide to Immortality: From Alchemy to Avatars dialogue which is completelyevoid of any concreate meaning There are no geographical or historical specifications as the Love on the Rocks Men Women and Alcohol in Post World War II America dialogue is reducedown to a series of pointless statements We have no idea where these characters are or where they ve come from The play appears illogical and rich in purposelessness but it is utterly brilliant it was something completely out there at the time and still is really Estragon We always find something eh Didi to give us the impression we existVladimir Yes yes we re magicians In all honestly this play is excruciating to read it is completely awful in parts and frustrating but the idea Samuel Beckett conveys at the same time is grand it makes up for the torture he has put you through as you look back and realise what he has achieved you look back and understand why he has broken all the conventions and wrote a play that is as absurd as it is genius En Attendant Godot Waiting for Godot Samuel Beckett Waiting for Godot is a play by Samuel Beckett in which two characters Vladimir Didi and Estragon Gogo wait for the arrival of someone named Godot who never arrives and
