In this essay, the theme of hopes will be illustrated in relations to the idea of absurdity to explore the similarities and differences of the underlying interpretation of these two stories. Waiting for Godot is a story that mainly focus on Estragon and Vladimir who have been endlessly waiting for the God’s arrival. This situation illustrates how human relies heavily on their hope; thinking that life would have hold the prospection of what is good which led them to believe and hold on to waiting for that good prospect to come. This story is similar to that of Chinese Coffee, by hoping that his book bring him success, on the brink of desperation life, Harry continues on living and keep developing his work in order to fulfill his dream of being a successful writer. On the contrary, Jake is highly pessimistic, he does not have much of a hope.
Philosophical Aspects of Literary Objectiveness ABSTRACT: Gadamer’s hermeneutic philosophy avoids the problem of literary objectiveness altogether. His approach witnesses the general fact that an indifference towards literary objectiveness in particular, leads to a peculiar neglect of par excellence literariness as such. It seems obvious, however, that the constitutive aspects of the crisis of literary objectiveness cannot be shown to contain the underlying intention of bringing about this situation. At this point, one can identify what could probably be the most important element in a definition of literary objectiveness. In contrast to ‘natural’ objectiveness and objectiveness based on various societal conventions, the legitimacy of a literary work is solely guaranteed by its elements being organized in accordance with the rules of literary objectiveness.

To keep the reader guessing and to hold the attention. Blurring these boundaries between Fiction and Non-Fiction has always been a great way for authors to make their points, yield their arguments, and to keep interest. If authors did not utilize this particular technique, most non-fiction accounts would become boring and uninteresting to a reader who did not want to learn about the particular. It is completely acceptable as long as the readers are told of the fictional aspect of the work. This is not one of the easiest techniques to use but if written correctly, creating a fictional account cannot be considered anything but excellent writing.
Davidson contends that these sentences do have meaning and that the meanings they have are just their literal meanings. Davidson’s positive sketch of the significance of metaphor follows a highly logical pattern. A metaphor makes us attend to some likeness, often a novel or surprising likeness, between two or more things (Lycan, 178). Davidson seems to be saying that there is no linguistic logic to why the effect of metaphor carries meaning for us. There is only a psychological means to understand why there is such a huge cognitive difference between a metaphor and just a simple word.
