does godot stand for god?
Also, just a note, it's often interpreted as such because "Godot" is actually pronounced "GOD-o."

Or perhaps 'non'.
Always remember that Beckett was an Irishman writing in France . In French. In 1948.
I'd rate it somewhere in my all time top ten literary works ( that is including writing by Shakespeare, Milton and Cervantes ).
To say that Godot does *not* represent God keeps the concept of Godot a question. Godot is a million things, yet nothing. There is an obvious hint toward religious themes in the play (though Beckett said otherwise, but he was famous for lying about his work), while at the same time, making Godot God would force the entire play to be about religion, which it obviously is not.
The only thing we can say Godot is, for sure, is the source of the answer. What the question is, we are still unsure. (well hello hitch hikers guide…)
