Summary of Waiting for Godot

Waiting for Godot is a tragic-comedy in two acts in which literally nothing happens. Yet audiences still find enjoyment from this nothingness! The setting is a lone tree by a country road, which makes the setting universal because it could take place anywhere. Two tramps named Estragon and Vladimir are endlessly waiting for salvation from a man named Godot. They are visited by Pozzo and his slave Lucky, yet remain indefinitely waiting for Godot.

For this reason, the play is a tragiccomedy in two parts, with an example essay of Waiting for Godot.
Both Acts of Waiting for Godot can be obtained for free: Act 1, Act 2.
