Johnny Stromp Prof. Wong Composition 2 November 29, 2009 Waiting for Godot The play Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett is about two men who are primarily waiting for hope. The play is based around Vladimir and Estragon and their pitiful wait for hope to arrive. Through out the play, hope is constructed in a form of salvation, through Pozzo and Lucky, or even through death. The subject of the play is noted right away as an example of how to pass time in a hopeless situation. Therefore the theme is set by the beginning: Estragon: Nothing to be done. Vladimir: I’m beginning to come round to that opinion. These are the first two lines of act 1 that is used in connection to Estragon’s boots. It is then used again later in the play referring to Vladimir’s hat. The point of this is that in essence it shows their hopelessness. A direct result of this hopelessness is the daily struggle to pass time by. Therefore throughout most of the play their time is spent devising games that will pass time by.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
