In the story "Waiting for Godot," Pozzo is more of a wealthy man that is controlling, decisive, and powerful. In the play, Pozzo is controlling because whatever he commands Lucky to do or say, Lucky obeys. "Up hog! (Noise of Lucky getting up and picking up his baggage. Pozzo jerks the rope.) Back! (Enter Lucky backwards.) Stop! (Lucky stops.) Turn! (Lucky turns)." A social construct that relate to Pozzo commanding Lucky is family. Lucky does what ever Pozzo says because he doesn't want Pozzo to give him away. Pozzo can be identified as decisive because he have the power of deciding and making choices quickly and confidently. In the play, Pozzo quickly decided for Lucky to dance in front of him and the two men. "He refused once. (Silence.) Dance, misery! Lucky puts down bag and basket, advances towards front, turns to Pozzo. Lucky dances. He stops." A example, of a social construct is economics because economics is about making choices. Last, he is also powerful because he tends to track and understand the time and year when the others can not. One social construct that can relate to him being powerful is education. When Pozzo looses his watch he becomes weak and blind and dragged along by Lucky. In the play, Pozzo mentions to didi and gogo that Lucky taught him everything he knows, giving the reader a clue that Lucky was in fact smart even though he was a slave.
