Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot” incorporates many characters including Vladamir, Estragon, Pozzo, Lucky, Boy, and Godot. Vladamir is one of the main characters alongside of Estragon, the second main character. Vladamir is foiled as the responsible, mature character between him and Estragon. Estragon is seen as very weak and helpless combined with his terrible memory.
The Story begins with the two main characters, Vladamir and Estragon, meeting near a tree. They begin to learn about one another and eventually tell each other that they are waiting for a man named Godot. They wonder if they are there on the correct day or even the correct spot. They begin to conflict with one another and eventually make up. They come with a plan to hang themselves from the tree, but finally decide to wait and see what Godot has to say. When Estragon gets hungry, Vladamir hands him a carrot. As they continue to wait two other characters enter the scene. Lucky, who is a slave, is being sent to the market by his owner Pozzo. Pozzo is dragging Lucky by a rope around his neck. Vladamir and Estragon converse a bit with Pozzo whilst being entertained by Lucky. Lucky does a variety of things including dancing as well as thinking. Lucky eats some chicken in which Estragon asks if he can have the bones. Lucky does not respond and so Estragon takes the bones. Vladamir gets livid with Pozzo’s treatment of Lucky. After being embarrassed at his own outburst, Vladamir decides he wants to leave. Pozzo reminds Vladamir he needs to stay and that he has an appointment with Godot. After learning much more information about the sixty years Lucky has served Pozzo, they ask him to think. Pozzo places a hat on Lucky in which he begins to speak a whole lot of gibberish. The men stop Lucky from his gibberish and so eventually Pozzo and Lucky continue their journey to the market.
Once Pozzo and his slave are gone, a young boy appears. The men ask if he is the one who came yesterday. The boy tells them that he is not. After asked if he works for Godot, the boy responds saying that he minds the sheep. The boy then informs him that Godot will not come tonight, but will be coming tomorrow. Vladamir asks the young boy if he is unhappy. The boy does not know. The boy leaves and the men decide they should leave. As the scene ends they remain in their original spots.
The next night arrives and...
