Guide Mentor

Character Role Analysis

Estragon

Since Estragon comes up with all the profound, insightful statements (see his character analysis for more), we think he acts as a guide for Vladimir. Of course, he doesn’t intend to be a guide, he doesn’t realize he’s a guide, and he is in no way successful at helping Didi in any aspect of life.
