Of course, the platonic connotation of master and slave is too obvious. And the notion of slavery is an act of mercy for them, who cannot take care of themselves.

As a writer I am used to total Idendification and have to "live tha part" from within. Anatoly as Lucky, or Lucky-Anatoly. Silent. Full of knowledge (full of sh...) and trying to keep everything from the past with me. Omnia mia mecum porte. (sp.) Everything mine a cary with me (Latin). Pozzo's.

Pozzo is Beckett's wife? Lucky is the most diffuicult part in the play! (Two faces of Lucky...)

Lucky

... For example, in the scene between the master and the slave, the ironically named Lucky is held on a leash by Pozzo. Lucky carries a heavy suitcase which he never considers putting down for relief. It is only when Pozzo commands him to think, and he is allowed to wear his hat, that he blurts out his incoherent speech. The fact that Lucky's silence is broken with nonsense underscores the theme of futility.

FAQ

-- postmodern knowledge (Lucky's knowledge)

In the course of the play it becomes increasingly apparent that Vladimir and Estragon are, relative to Godot, in the same servile position Lucky is, especially with respect to the doubly-violent end to his deconstructive think.

... Their minds are slaves to Godot in the same way Lucky's body is a slave to Pozzo. [ notes p. 111 ]

... asynopsisandanalysisoftheplaybySamuelBeckett ...

Lucky' speech is a "direct" irony (blank parody), very postmodern.
