There is always a challenge of getting into the very core of an author’s creation;it could be an Art drawing,sculpture,photograph or book,anyway we must admit that each of them is marvel by itself.My prime interest is writing,although, i made earlier some drawings ,they are portraits.                               

Imagine for a moment to be sitting in the school desks again as used to do  in teen age, having before you a literary work you need to make an Analysis.There were many of schoolmates that found it to be difficult task -to put themselves into mind of a writer,to catch up final thought and follow path of thinking,getting to know of Writer’s life .Having said this last,i had something in my mind,for i believe,being myself one who tries to share some beautiful story using this useful tool invented by modern world ,every writer in creating a work tells a truth about oneself.

I chose an author who has for a long time  been present in my mind-Samuel Beckett and his masterpiece “Waiting for Godot”.


Waiting for Godot

Waiting for Godot

Waiting for Godot is a play written by Irish author Samuel Beckett in 1943 in French language and translated later by him in English.Play puts  two actors in the stage where one of them named Estragon trying to take off his boot.Estragon and Vladimir/the name of the second character/waiting for someone by name Godot to come up.It is nothing spectacular,there is no excitable plot,only a simple waiting.What a genius idea,because behind each simple thought which has no clear consequence lies the most labyrinthine outcome.Let’s take that hank from the beginning :One  day you was born- little child without complete awareness of yourself and own origin.There had been a magic of living in *lost*world ,being still unconscious of a real life bearing challenges ,troubles and horrors,and between them death appears to be the most terrific fact waiting for you to get to know.Death is our final destination.You was born,lived your life and came to the end.You have gone forever.The question of death has been treated in many cultures and religions since Human civilization began its existence .There are Indian,Egyptian,China,Greek and all others civilizations with their look of death.Egyptians have own approach,preparing themselves to the final Resistance.The special Tribute had been given to Pharaohs who were carrying the essence cognition of ancient Egypt.In India there is wonderful saying of traveling Human soul;belief in reincarnation which had left numerous tracks in beautiful poems Mahabharata and Ramayana,all followed by great songs Hare Crsna and others.In Cristian world the greatest event was the birth and Resurrection of Jesus Christ,as symbol of eternal life that seeks of being deserved by every Human being.

In every possible respect,Human path was continual attempt to WIN  over DEATH.There is no acceptance for man of being mere turned  into nothingness.There is inevitable fact that we can’t reconcile to disappear one day and such solution doesn’t exist in our consciousness.If there were no deep religious belief in immortality of some people,at least existed Hope in some kind of Salivation and extension of life.There is an unconsciouses Hope of coming Someone or Something to solve our fate and save us of nonentity.And because we are not able to help ourselves on our own, we are WAITING for Someone to do it for us.

It is first WAITING-the  most important for meaning of Life itself and its value

Let’s begin now from inability to solve situation by our own action.Having been in such stage,no wonder for we watching in a far silhouette to gift us with precious knowledge and skills to live our lives forever,by reaching the Heaven.There is no clear contour of expected rescuer-only a few possible ideas in our head,nothing which could be concrete appearance.

What is a line to stop us of achievement  more accomplishments than we usually make?I forced myself by practicing meditation to focus my thoughts to an Idea which became my life goal-my polestar.An idea you have found inside of yourself is value to be followed;everything in opposite put you in stand of waiting for circumstances and other persons to reach what you don’t succeed on your own.But it is only a first thought,if you think about it deeper you will be able to recognize that you WAITING for YOURSELF!You wait for your DOUBLE!

Second WAITING- for your DOUBLE

Now we have been back in the beginning of  story:two men waiting for Godot,leaving us in dilemma :Who is Godot?

Love you this conclude and solution of puzzle or not, it is TRUE-you wait for your Double-being somewhere in a far place to come back to you and give a hand.One day ,when mysterious death comes along its way ,you will meet your Double;by now,i hope that you understood meaning of such Waiting -it is in vain; if you expect to make your life better and happier aspire to meet yourself now.

Waiting for Godot

My writing is an Abstract, rather than a review,because i don’t make an analysis of work;i create an unique story by inspiration found in a writer’s creation.I don’t think it is a wrong way of approaching to literature, for a writer in writing  a story calls on readers to find own interpretations following their destiny and views on everything in realm of Human reach.

One profile of abstracts in my direction is win over old age;read story inspired by personal life experience and literature masterpieces,both mixed by fiction and reality.
