Waiting for Godot centers on humanism as it delves in to the minds of human beings, their relationships, the sufferings they go through and absurdity of the life they are living. What Beckett endeavors to convey is not pessimism or despair but courage and hope to face human condition as it is, with all its misery. Life is absurd and meaningless so there is no cause for despondence and despair. Man should face the bitter realities of life with optimistic outlook and not feel disinherited at the time of suffering and misery. The futile and hopeless existence of man is taking him towards absurdity and incongruity. To laugh at our own misery is the only way of coming to terms with it. The present paper is an argumentative account of optimism in Beckett’s master peace on the absurd, Waiting for Godot.
