Pozzo, a male, appears in the book after lucky came along. Pozzo has a very "bossy" attitude, more like the master or a father figure. He is very powerful and confident of what he does. He is the one that seems like he's "On Top" of every current situation. Pozzo has been mistreating Lucky, he treats Lucky as if he was a slave. Pozzo constantly calls lucky by animal names, and when Pozzo commands something to Lucky, Lucky obeys.
THREE MAIN CHARACTER TRAITS
Pozzo is considered a wealthy male because of the way he dresses. Pozzo dresses better then lucky would. The wealth of Pozzo would then be considered into the category of Economics.
Pozzo is mistreating Lucky, Pozzo commands Lucky to do something and Lucky obeys him. Lucky is being tortured by being on a "Rope" and being called animal names, basically a "slave" for Pozzo. This is like during the time of Slavery, which Lucky is one of the "Slaves"
During the play "Waiting for Godot" the gender of the characters were all males. The Author decided never to add females , why? Most possible agreeable answer is, Beckett did not want to add all the unnecessary drama into a play that could involved men.
Pozzo: "Lets say no more about it.(He jerks the rope) Up Pig! (Pause) Every time he drops he falls asleep. (Jerks the rope.) Up hog! (Noise of Lucky getting up and picking up his baggage. Pozzo jerks the rope.) Back! (Enter Lucky backwards.) Stop! (Lucky stops.) Turn! ....................... (To Lucky.) Coat! (Lucky puts down the bag, advances, gives the coat, goes back to his place, takes up the bag.) Hold that! (Pozzo holds out the whip. Lucky advances and, both his hands being occupied, takes the whip in his mouth, then goes back to his place. Pozzo begins to put on his coat, stops.) Coat! (Lucky puts down the bag, basket and stool, helps Pozzo on with his coat, goes back to his place and takes up bag, basket and stool.)"
This is a parts of a quote when Pozzo comes in, on how he treats Lucky.
