Abstract

In Samuel Beckett's absurdist play, Waiting for Godot, two homeless men named Estragon and Vladimir wait for the arrival of a man called Godot somewhere out in the country by a tree. The two hapless men wait in vain; they are bored, hungry, and they slip in and out of despair but continue to wait. Maybe tomorrow Godot will come. They entertain the idea of ending it all. They wait in vain. Godot never comes. Perhaps like these two unfortunates, we are waiting for 'early intervention' like they waited for Godot.
