In this study, taking exception to both the theological and atheistic interpretations of Samuel Beckett's work and focusing on his trilogy and his play Waiting for Godot I first attempt to explore in what sense and to what extent he is an atheist and explain why he uses negative language when referring to a supposed divinity. In the second part, my intention is to discuss how the heroes' metaphysical quest functions in his works as well as to interpret the author's lyrical and mystical moments. Finally, mv main argument is that Beckett wants to overcome any metaphysical quest.
