Dear author of this analysis. Becket does not write in 'Waiting for Godot' that the four gospels present different accounts of the two thieves. What he writes, and what really is the case, is that only one of the four gospels present this account. And hence, the conclusion that you have made regarding the trustworthiness of the Bible is irrelevant and in fact deceiving.

It is disappointing to find a wholly unsupported claim such as the one made by the author of this note regarding the conversation between Vladimir and Estragon early in Act I about execution of two criminals who were crucified on either side of Jesus. Vladimir explains that only one writer includes a conversation between Jesus and the two men, the apparent repentance of one of the men, and Jesus’ promise the man would be with Jesus in paradise that very day.

    Waiting for Godot  was written in French in 1949. In the first scene, two men, Vladimir and Estragon, wait on a lonely country road for an appointment with Godot. After a while Pozzo enters, leading Lucky on a rope. They talk. Godot fails to arrive. The second scene is a mirror image of the first. The Irish critic Vivian Mercier called  Waiting for Godot  a play in which ‘nothing happens, twice’.

    ‘Astride of a grave in a difficult birth. Down in the hole, lingeringly, the grave-digger puts on the forceps. We have time to grow old. The air is full of our cries. [He listens.] But habit is a great deadener.’
    – Vladimir,  Waiting for Godot

    Hamm is blind and unable to stand; Clov, his servant, is unable to sit; Nagg and Nell are his father and mother, who are legless and live in dustbins. Together they live in a room with two windows, but there may be nothing at all outside.

    A twenty-minute, almost totally silent film (no dialogue or music one ''''''''shhh!'''''''') in which Buster Keaton attempts to evade observation by an all-seeing eye. But, as the film is based around. See full summary

    Vladimir and Estragon, alone again, reflect on whether they met Pozzo and Lucky before. A boy then arrives, purporting to be a messenger sent from Godot to tell the pair that Godot will not be coming that evening "but surely tomorrow". [10] During Vladimir''''s interrogation of the boy, he asks if he came the day before, making it apparent that the two men have been waiting for a long period and will likely continue. After the boy departs, the moon appears and the two men verbally agree to leave and find shelter for the night, but they merely stand without moving.

    Beckett refrained from elaborating on the characters beyond what he had written in the play. He once recalled that when Sir Ralph Richardson "wanted the low-down on Pozzo, his home address and curriculum vitae , and seemed to make the forthcoming of this and similar information the condition of his condescending to illustrate the part of Vladimir. I told him that all I knew about Pozzo was in the text, that if I had known more I would have put it in the text, and that was true also of the other characters." [14]

    Two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone or something named Godot. Vladimir and Estragon wait near a tree on a barren stretch of road, inhabiting a drama spun from their own consciousness.

    Beckett on Film was a project aimed at making film versions of all nineteen of Samuel Beckett ''''''''''''''''s stage plays, with the exception of the early and unperformed Eleutheria . This endeavour was successfully completed, with the first films being shown in 2001.

    The project was conceived by Michael Colgan , artistic director of Dublin ''''''''''''''''s Gate Theatre. The films were produced by Colgan and Alan Moloney for the Irish broadcaster RTÉ , the British broadcaster Channel 4 and the Irish Film Board. Each had a different cast and director, drawn from theatre, film and other fields.

    he prospect of filming "Waiting for Godot" has always fascinated me. Can film do it any justice? Better yet, will it even translate well on film? I believe it could work. However, it depends on who adapts the screen adaptation. I'm not talking about a re-imagining but a direct adaptation. I cannot see anything being changed in "Waiting for Godot" because if anything is changed it will not be Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" but [Director's Name]'s "Waiting for Godot."

    Still, if nothing is changed, it still doesn't mean it will work as a motion picture. Some of the greatest works of literature have been adapted to the silver screen with a faithful structure and direct character quotations, only to fail miserably. Take Henry James' " The Europeans " for example. The novel is a perfectly enriched with interesting characters trying to adapt in a sudden clash of cultures.

    I think I d call the column "Dear Absurdby"-- I think I d start by writing letters from characters in the show that reflect some of their concerns: "Dear Absurdby--I ve been happy serving my idol, "Paul", for a long time--but now he wants to sell me! What should I do to get him to change his mind and let me keep working as his draft animal?" "Dear Absurdby--I think my friend "Edsie" is distracted. He keeps asking questions there s no answer for. He doesn t seem to care about my problems anymore, and I ve got a lot of them--my feet hurt and my memory isn t what it used to be. How can I get him to focus on reality once in a while?" I ll leave you to do letters from Vladimir and Pozzo.

    Hello Joanna, There is no way of knowing who Godot is - even Beckett remained mum on the subject. So, he really could be a metaphor for anything or, indeed, for nothing! He never arrives, so does he even exist except in the minds of Vladimir and Estragon? I think, overall it is an exploration of life and its inherent meaninglessness - waiting for things that never appear.
