2000 Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett

Atmospheres

Story:
Beckett describes the setting of Waiting for Godot as an afternoon in the country and a tree. The universality of the situation is relevant to the work as he portrays the human story with no ethnic or geographic influences. An empty scenery which focuses the attention upon the players and their isolation. It thus becomes more pure tyhan if they were to be found in the city or corrupted by society.
