Re: vogue
Thank you and that you are motivated to re-read the play will give you newer meanings. These modern European fiction and drama in translations, as many are called the Theatre of the Absurd, e.g. the play Godot, Rhinoceros, move from nowhere to niwhere, but very interesting all the same in that every reader will interpret in accordance with his/her understanding and mentality, they are so widely open.

Very interesting interpretation. It has compelled me to re-read the play. Will do so next week.

Re: Wow!
isiS, I just loved your 'play'. But besides the word-play, it coneys the meaning of the play so aptly: The God of Old Testament Dodges, or, the Dodging God of Old Testament. See if I lay my hands on The Year of living Biblically. Seems a good title, isiS was an Egyptian  goddess of fertility, right? And, thank you so much.

Re: Wow!
Ack!  And I did it again, messed up your name!  Abanerjee.  I shall type it fifty times so I'll get it right.

Wow!

Interesting indeed, abanergee.  I've never actually seen this play, but now feel compelled to finally do so.

I suppose we could play on words.  Clearly the first three letters imply a god of some type, and possibly the last two are OT as in Old Testament.  But if you reverse the name Godot, you get Todog, which could be literally translated into To Dodge.

Anyway, probably I'm only thinking this way because I've been reading The Year of Living Biblically, by A.J. Jacobs.  So far a fascinating book that I highly recommend.

I like Soulspeaker’s term “mental nourishment”.  You provide both summations  and food for thought…..

Yes, I agree, that it could well be "man's acknowledgment of his immortal soul, the "true" self, his total essence." Thank you so much for the input.  Is religion the motive force, I think I'll dwell on this aspect of Godot, tonight.

Godot may, possibly, be man's acknowledgment of his immortal soul, the "true" self, his total essence. Hmmmm. Thanks for the mental nourishment. Peace, blessings and understanding.~SS

Re: elinjo
The possibility for being in the here and now is invariably blinded when we look outside, where it (ecstasy) is not to be found. Thank you ma'am.

Re: Nileangel
All the treasures, in fact, the richest, the self, is to be found within, in comparison to which, all others are just pebbles. Blessed be.

Fascinating topic! Perhaps Godot symbolizes our yearning for the unattainable, that blinds us for all the possibilities here and now?

Oh what glory there would be if all would seek first within; the treasures all would find.

Thankyou for your comment. Blessed Be.
