Death is a word that we know and fear, but what exactly does the word death mean to you? The end of life? The end of time? The end of hope? Wellmaybe. Some see Death as a messenger sent by god to take away people’s lives. For some people, death is the worse of the worse thing of all, but for the protagonists in the plays “Amadeus” and “Waiting for Godot” death is something that they do not fear.

VLADIMIR: Yes, but not so rapidly. Pause. ESTRAGON: What do we do now?
