Waiting for Godot I chose the Character Vladimir, also called Didi from the play Waiting for Godot, to do a character analysis on. Vladimir is the one who insists Estragon wait with him for Mr. Godot. They are both shabby bums, however Vladimir seems smarter than Estragon, some might say he is the brain and Estragon is the body. At one point Estragon gets on Vladimir’s case for not being there when he got beaten, but Vladimir says that if he got beaten he must have deserved it. He then goes on to admit that if he had been around to be Estragon’s conscience, Estragon wouldn’t have done anything bad in the first place. Vladimir, who is always messing with his hat, is restless, unlike Estragon who remains seated most of the time.

    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.
