	BECKET:
 
His sacrifice which lacks religious motivvation and is inspired only
by purely esthetic considerations.  Henry thrust upon him the office
of Archbishop, which gave him an absolute truth which he could devo-
tedly pursue and serve until his death.  Becket tried to faithfully
play the role of an Archbishop  which he pictured to be the right 
manner in which to defend the honor of God.  In a world which he 
recognised as being corrupt and meaningless, Becket found a meaningful
life by committing himself totally to the defense of God's honor.  
Again, it is to be emphasized that Becket did not love honor for its
own sake, but for the sake of an idea of honor which he created for
himself.  All of Beckets actions were derived only from his own 
concept of what he chose to wholeheartedly follow.  Becket had a 
profound sense of duty, eternal and unconditional, which he remained
completely loyal to until his death, which was brought about by this
loyalty.  Becket lived solely on this idea of fulfilling his role in
defending God's honor as he conceived it to be.  He lived without 
compromise, he continued to only live under the irrevocable commit-
ment to the honor of God.  Becket's credo was to do what is necessary
 when it is necessary.  By following this supreme duty, he made his
life purposeful and his world orderly, of course, only for himself.
Thus, Becket was the hero who remained pure and intransigent in the
midst of corruption and compromise.  This was Anouilh's hero, the man
who clings to his demands of an honor which he choses to die for, a
man who is completely dedicated and committed.
