This paper presents an introduction to and an overview of the celebrated incompleteness theorems of Kurt Godel. Starting with Richard's paradox, the logical antimony that motivated Godel to look at encoding metamathematics in the arithmetic of integers, this overview traces the highlights of the encoding and the gist of Godel's final arguments.
