Compare and Contrast of Vladimir, Bernada, and Gayev
Seen through the Shattering of Illusion
Horizon of Illusion, Sunrise of Reality
Reality and illusion, two separate worlds bound together in the eyes of human beings. As people, we use this illusion to blanket our reality, cover it from the darkness of the truth, to deny anything that might oppose our principles, thus securing our lives by blocking out what we fear. However, when lifting this blanket of illusion from our eyes, we see our true unmasked humanity. The plays, Waiting for Godot, by Samuel Beckett, The House of Bernada Alba, by Lorca, and The Cherry Orchard, by Anton Chekhov, all show that through the shattering of one's illusion, the true essence of one's soul is revealed.
Samuel Beckett's, Waiting for Godot focuses on two men, Vladimir and Estragon, sharing the same illusion that a man named Godot will arrive to meet them. They wait with each other, talking continuously about anything that will aid them in "passing the time."(Beckett 29) Even when a new character, Pozzo, is presented
