No one in the play has seen Godot except for the little boy but they believe him that he’s real. It's like the story Vladimir tells about the thieves on page 9“but one of the four says that one of the two was saved” while the three others don't say that but when asks who believes the one person's story, Vladimir responds with “everybody. Its the only version they know”
Godot can be seen as god because of the similarities in their names and in lucky’s speech it says “God quaquaquaqua with white beard” and later on when asking the boy about Godot
“Has he a beard, mr Godot
Fair or….(he hesitates)... or black?
I think it’s white, Sir”
Connection to other texts
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
Rosencrantz: easygoing, confused majority of the time, and seeks simplicity
Similar to Estragon, who appears helpless throughout the plotline
Guildenstern: Anxious, seeks understanding, rational character
Vladimir: Responsible mature, thinky guy, his hat represents knowledge
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is an absurd play, the characters aren't really sure whats going on and the events have no correlation to one another. In this same manner, Waiting for Godot describes to men waiting for Godot, but fail to mention their intention and/or motives
Both portray mystery and absurdity
Dante is lost and wanders helplessly, waiting for help, when suddenly Virgil appears
In a similar aspect, Vladimir and Estragon are helplessly waiting for Godot
Thresholds: sin in Earth is equal to punishment he/she receives in hell
Estragon’s threshold: to take off his boots or not?
To face reality and the issues he must overcome or to run away from truth
Emil Sinclair seemed to be infatuated by Demian, he admired him in an indescribable way
Lucky admires his master Pozzo
Real- Life Connection
People pray all the time in hope that whatever they are praying for will come true. They can never tell if what they want will happen but they must keep their faith in believing that their prayers will be answered. They cannot see God but believe that he is real and is listening to them at all times. At times they may those faith and think they should give up on praying, but their faith tells them to keep believing. They hope that he will come through and provide them with what they are praying for.
