No Repetition Where None Intended : A Stylistic Study Of Repetition as a Cohesive Signal In Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot

Authors: Fatima H. Aziz --- Majeed H. Jasim
Pages: 1-19

Samuel Beckett seems to be possessed by the idea of repetition to the extent that it becomes one of the principal traits which distinguishes his work. Repetition , here ,should not be confined to the abstract dictionary meaning .The term simply suggests that there are similar dramatic settings , situations , and phrases which may be found in more than one place in the same play, and in their relations to the theme of the playwright. Thus , the cohesive function of repetition is to achieve certain dramatic purposes so as to provide us with a useful key in attempting an interpretation of the play and to make us see clearly the meaning and the relevance of the dramatist’s philosophy . This suggestion can be substantiated by discussing and examining the ideas of Beckett and how repetition becomes of a great significance in presenting the settings , action and dialogue in a symbolic way in “Waiting for Godot “ *(henceforth, WFG).
