	BECKET
 
His sacrifice which  lacks religious motivation 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 Becket's 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
commitment  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.
