'What is now proved was once only imagin'd.'
- William Blake
What I am saying does not mean that there will henceforth be no form in art. It only means that there will be a new form, and that this form will be of such a type that it admits the chaos, and does not try to say that the chaos is really something else. The form and the chaos remain separate. The latter is not reduced to the former. That is why the form itself becomes a preoccupation, because it exists as a problem separate from the material it accommodates. To find a form that accommodates the mess, that is the task of the artist. *

What is "show"?
Reality, memory, and time: A character based study of "Waiting for Godot" --
Estragon: http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node=Estragon -- Estragon cannot be depended upon for reporting on reality, he rather has "visions" (as Vladimir calls it, when Estragon see imaginary hordes coming to get them). He is like the simple epileptic pronounced a holy man because of spasms of devotion, or the schizophrenic who hears `divine' voices. In his case, he is a "poet", simply because he is in rags. He is Christ-like simply because he is barefoot. And he is the ultimate unreliable narrator
In Waiting for Godot" the names of people too, are incidental. Estragon introduces himself as "Adam", Vladimir answers when the boy addresses him as "Mister Albert", and when Estragon proposes to amuse himself by trying out names for Pozzo (whom he does not remember), Pozzo answers to "Abel", and to "Cain".
