Theatre of Absurd and Samuel Becketts Waiting for Godot as an Absurd Drama

Tazir Hussain


Abstract: The term Theatre of Absurd was coined by Martin Esslin in his essay The Theatre of the Absurd (1961). The dramas belonging to the genre of Theatre of Absurd project a state which is described as metaphysical anguish. The plays of Theatre of Absurd lack a logical and conventional structure which is the representation of the absurd predicament. Samuel Becketts Waiting for Godot bears the presence of elements of Theatre of Absurd. This paper is an endeavor to shed light on Waiting for Godot as an Absurd Drama
