Abstract

This study tends to delve into the different facets of the play Waiting for Godot on a postmodern bedrock, where the role of modernism cannot be disavowed. Waiting for Godot shares both modernist and postmodernist features. Nullification of linear historical time, imprisonment within an ahistorical prospect, predisposition toward the perception of uncertainty or the notion of 50/50 chances, evincing numerous signs of binary opposition and most important of all displaying absolute absurdism in all parts of the play have paved the path to give it a postmodern scrutiny.
