Abstract: Since its opening in Paris in 1953, Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot has received the attention of numerous critics who have attempted to analyze this enigmatic drama. No one knows for sure what Godot is about; nevertheless, each critic who writes about the play seems passionately convinced that his interpretation is correct. I have attempted to shed some light on critical interpretations of Waiting for Godot, which because of its complexity, can support most of the divergently contradictory interpretations writting about it.
