A critical analysis of the ritual quest for renewal that revolves around the arrival, or nonarrival, of Godot/savior figures in the plays of Beckett, Pinter, Ionesco, Albee, Grass, and Genet. The discussion leads to a consideration of modern man's fate as an exile and his own possibilities for coming home.
