Lucky: The True Cerebral
Waiting For Godot
Social Constructs -
Economics - Lucky is stuck in economic disparity, which you see in his clothes and face as seen in the play he looks old, weathered and dirty. We can gather this from the play in which it said, he looked tired and worn. In the screenplay his clothes appeared more ragged and worn than the others.
Religion - You can see a tie between religion and lucky in his speech, which he repeats phrases such as "for reasons unknown" and "time will tell". Which are known throughout the bible to be said in foreshadowing events. Which leads you to believe lucky could be a profit of sorts to these men.
Education - We see this in lucky's speech where he conveys his adept knowledge and intellect, how is it that a man how such knowledge could be the "servant". Lucky sounds both authoritative and intelligent, but his words seem to lack any actual meaning underneath.
Time -In this play lucky is thought to be trapped as a slave at first, in the the place of his brother. In actuality, Lucky is waiting to die, this is shown through his dance "The Net" which symbolize his waiting to die, but being caught in life, hence the name of his dance "The Net"
"For reasons unknown.."
Short Character Summary
Lucky is seen to be an obedient "servant" of sorts to pozzo. In the play he follows all of Pozzo's command and wishes. Whether it be bring his basket or chair to entertaining Gogo and Didi.
Though Lucky had few lines in the play one could draw that he is a very animated person when speaking, he is significantly more robust than average person when giving his speech, similar to President Nixon.
Though just as being seen as a servant Lucky is more than capable. Lucky is not "dumb" by any means, not only does follows simple commands, but he has a rather impressive vocabulary as shown in his speech in the play.
