Waiting for Godot Narrator Point of View

By Samuel Beckett

Narrator Point of View

Though all works of literature present the author’s point of view, they don’t all have a narrator or a narrative voice that ties together and presents the story. This particular piece of literature doesn't have a narrator through whose eyes or voice we learn the story... because it's a play, and the audience only really gets at the bowler-hatted characters romping around onstage.
