Waiting for Godot Truth Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

ESTRAGON His name is Godot? VLADIMIR I think so. (1.277-8)


The doubt surrounding Godot increases as the play continues. Now they cannot even be sure of the man’s name, arguably the one "fact" they were operating with until now.

Quote #2

ESTRAGON Why doesn't he put down his bags? […] ESTRAGON Why doesn't he put down his bags? (1.407-15)


The asking of questions – often the same question over and over – sets the tone of uncertainty in Waiting for Godot.

Quote #3

VLADIMIR You want to get rid of him? […] VLADIMIR You want to get rid of him? […] ESTRAGON You've had enough of him? […] VLADIMIR You want to get rid of him? (1.437-43)


Exactly. Same deal as the thought above.
