Waiting for Godot Judas, Tom & Jerry, Beavis and Butthead, Luigi, Megan Fox

“Let's go." "We can't." "Why not?" "We're waiting for Godot.”
"But at this place, at this moment of time, all mankind is us, whether we like it or not. Let us make the most of it, before it is too late!”

THEME

The more we anticipate the future, the more we rob from the experiences of the present.

Text to Text

Much like the characters in “Waiting for Godot” the myth of Sisyphus displays the struggle of living the same day over and over again; without making any progress whatsoever. For those who are not familiar with the myth of Sisyphus it centers around a man who is forced to push a boulder up a hill repeatedly, only to have it roll back down at the end of the day. He is doomed to this pointless fate for eternity; similar to Vladimir and Estragon who are simply in perpetual waiting.

Text to Art

Salvador Dali was a well renowned artist known for his surrealist paintings. This is very much the artistic equivalent of the absurdist movement in literature. The artistry doesn't necessarily connect to the story in a literal sense, but rather in principle. Both the story and the art express a feeling of pure pointlessness and sheer nihilism through absurdity. Much how the art has no inherent meaning Vladimir and Estragon wait for an eternity seemingly for no reason.

“Let us do something, while we have the chance! It is not every day that we are needed. Not indeed that we personally are needed."

What is your Godot?

Vladimir and Estragon are FOILS for Pozzo and Lucky.

At What Cost?
