Example text

Lucky, who is something of an appendage to Pozzo, and Estragon, who is something of an appendage to Vladimir, take their roles in the initiation rite as well. Pozzo’s initiation or ritual death begins in act 1 with the gradual loss of his illusions of purpose and power. When he enters in circus-master fashion, driving Lucky, a rope around his neck, before him, Pozzo presents himself with such pomposity that Didi and Gogo momentarily mistake him for Godot. “I am Pozzo! (Silence) Pozzo! ) Does that name mean nothing to you?

Herm is marked by a rolled-out carpet. It is not essential for him to lie there all the time, Beckett has said. The scene begins. Pozzo creeps away; Estragon and Vladimir are calling him. As they get up, there is an interruption. This structure has been fixed for quite a while, but Beckett would like to tighten it once again. The getting up at the beginning should be done in a normal way, but after that the movements should be slowed down. Bollman and Wigger synchronize once again the gestures between themselves.

VLADIMIR: You mean, if we fell on him in his sleep? ESTRAGON: Yes. VLADIMIR: That seems a good idea all right. What Bollman and Wigger are carrying out privately, they perform in the context of the play, through a whole range of emotions—joyful, childish, naive and sadistic—yet at the same time with a thrilling, funny kind of anticipation. The getting up is repeated, and then Vladimir’s and Estragon’s “staggering” is tidied up. ” Beckett has some doubts and would like to cut it. He is very much concerned with tightening the action at this point.
