The Waiting Room, By Peter Nicks

- Today, in the contemporary United States, there are many different influencers to a person’s health, such as poverty and/or unemployment.

However, it is not surprising that the plays written in this unusual and mysterious manner are perceived as if there is a particular need to disclose their secret meaning translated into everyday language....   [tags: Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett]

- “One of Satan’s most frequently used deception is the notion that the commandments of God are meant to restrict freedom and limit happiness” (Benson 1). Samuel Beckett represents the boy in Waiting for Godot as Satan, the fallen angel. According to Greg Laurie, Satan is one of the most powerful beings known to man; every man knows who he is and has experienced his torment, whether or not they consciously recognize it (Laurie 1). Knowing Satan’s character, how he deceives, and that he discourages mankind will help one understand Beckett’s thought in representing Satan through a little boy....   [tags: Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett]

- In the play Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett uses the motif of habit as a way to portray the two characters, Estragon and Vladimir as unnatural while they wait, as well as a forum to show a dependency upon habit thus presenting addictions as part of human nature. Throughout the play, Estragon and Vladimir develop abnormal routines, as portrayed in the simple start. Beckett starts with “A country road. A tree. Evening”, a simplistic setting. He creates a sense of ambiguity as they could be anywhere, and anytime....   [tags: Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett, Lucky]

However, as any liberal arts students would do, we research and it amazes me all of the symbols that were in this play. What I found was that Waiting for Godot is part of the absurdist theatre, which is when a writer creates a script that shows a “meaningless” world that is overshadowing the people who are lost and confused of what to make of their lives/future....   [tags: Waiting for Godot, Lucky, Pozzo, Estragon]

- The absurdity of Waiting for Godot and its outward lack of plot structure and character development begs the audience to question whether there is any meaning to it. However, by delving deeper and exploring the notions of existentialism that the play introduces, Waiting for Godot teases the audience with a mini-existential crisis, pushing them to question whether there is any meaning to life all, which this play exaggerates; and this question, which may not have a correct answer or an answer at all, is pivotal to the human experience....   [tags: Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett, Lucky]

- The play Waiting for Godot has been the source of many interpretations despite its ambiguous nature. But perhaps, this is especially the reason why many have tried to find some sort of interpretation or reason. Less becomes more as we search for meanings in minimalistic and subjective events. Perhaps like a Rorschach test, these interpretations offer us insight into what is important among society at the time of the interpretations and the individual as a whole.
