  • Tick Creative Writing

    I even had you fooled.” “Midge, you know better than to call my workplace,” I fired back in a frustrated tone. “Does that mean you didn’t miss me either?” she answered sounding upset. Tick. Tick. Tick. It’s 3:30 p.m. and I am back in the office. I left hastily to reconcile the issues with Midge. She was upset that I wasn’t happy that I received her call, but she knew better! What we have now works because it doesn’t interfere with any other part of my life. If she didn’t get that I don’t know…

  • The Lucky Strike By Greg Bear Analysis

    Sacrifice is a generalization of the endless inner turmoil of suffering and an extension of the lone wings of passion. It is an investment in the vestige of honor and a projection nobility. Sacrifice is a sacred, holy ideal that we often times try to hold ourselves to while facing the opposition of what is socially expected and morally irrelevant. The way sacrifice manifests in an individual’s psyche prescribes his or her actions. This is evident in the central characters in both of the short…

    (Pause.) For the moment '. The characters fail to realize that the very act of waiting is a choice,yet they view it as mandatory.

  • Waiting For Godot Eclectic Theatre Essay

    “Nothing happens. Nobody comes, nobody goes. It's awful.” This quote extracted from Waiting for Godot, an absurdist play by Samuel Beckett that premiered on 5 January 1953, holds the essence of absurdist theatre and what its playwrights seek to express- the inescapable meaningless and futility of life. The origins of absurdist theatre are commonly linked to the avant-garde experimentations of the 19th century, but there has been speculation that there were traces of absurdist theatre in works…

  • The Purpose Of Meaning In Waiting For Godot By Samuel Beckett

    must, because theres a rational reason no matter how far fetched. Sounds like something we would do, just sitting and waiting. Yet we aren’t on board fully with waiting for a figure neither knew anything about, if we we’re to place ourselves in a realm of sense we would have to don bowler hats, consistently take it off to check inside, and speak like philosophers who bumped their heads once to many times. Though despite that we do find Vladimir as the one who makes the most sense, and is a man…

Didi and Gogo cannot help encountering each other in what looks like a scarcely populated earth. They want to drift apart but a strange love and care bind them. On the other hand, Pozzo is mortified by Lucky 's passivity sometimes. There is a dependency at work here too. When Lucky speaks his thought aloud, his…

  • Theme Of Waiting In Waiting For Godot

    are forced to inhabit de-narrativised times. Time in the play appears to have no sense of beginning, middle and end. Unlike most narratives the play does not have a linear timeline and this lack of structure leaves the characters with a sense chaos resulting in panic. Neither Vladimir nor Estragon has memory of how it all began. This also leads to question just how long have the Vladimir and Estragon been waiting for Godot, has it been days, months or perhaps years. The way in which time passes…

  • Postmodernism In Hamlet

    However, Beckett’s play is serious and grim, much different than Stoppard comedic tragedy. This difference may have to do with the personal background of each playwright. Tom Stoppard was a child during the outbreak of World War II but Samuel Beckett was an active member of the French Resistance. As an Irishman helping the French, Beckett fearfully watched WWII much like his characters Vladimir and Estragon fearfully watched the episodes of Pozzo and Lucky. In contrast, Stoppard was a child…
