Irony and salvation in waiting for godot uri icon


  • Vladimir and Estragon strive to survive in the austere stage conditions of Waiting for Godot. Their salvation is closely linked to irony, which is used as a tool in the deconstruction and rebuilding of their existence. The protagonists' ironic perspectives on being, acting, and interacting provide the blueprint of Beckett's dark humanism. © 2007 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
