"Waiting for Godot," in an excellent title for the story because its main characters, Vladimir and Estragon, do little else in the novel besides wait. The two contemplate life and wait for Godot to arrive and tell them what it means, but he isn't coming, and they know it. The story is a perfect example of Absurdism..... and it's absurd that Vladimir and Estragon wait for something they know will not be forthcoming.
