This book provides an introductory study of Beckett’s

most famous play, dealing not just with the four main

characters but with the pairings that they form, and

the implications of these pairings for the very idea of

character in the play. After locating Godot within the

context of Beckett’s work, Lawley discusses some of

the play’s puzzles and difficulties-including the

absent “fifth character”, Godot himself.
