 Fiction: Under One Sun - by blackdove (242 words) - Date online (24-10-2005)
  
Experimental

Definitely experimental! Two stories, told in alternating sentences (one story in block, the other - to differentiate - in bold italics) They can either by read as two separate stories or simultaneously. I think what I can liken it most to is a piece of knitting. Two parts on separate needles, but as the piece grows towards the end, the knitting its brought back together again to make a whole garment. Finishing at the same place, using the same wools i.e. the same characters. Does this make sense? No? Well, bear with me in reading this and let me know what you think folks. Thanks, Jem x

 Fiction: ‘Waiting for Godot’. Act Three. Sub Titled ‘The arrival of Godot’ - by Gerry (643 words) - Date online (17-10-2005)
Drama

'Waiting for Godot' has probably been studied by more students than any other book. There is a good chance that if you didn't have to study it, you will have read it or seen the play performed. You may have loved it or hated it. It has been interpreted in so many ways by so many academics. In turn its meaning has been viewed as Political, Religious, Philosophical. Mathematical and Metaphorical and perhaps many others--Most seem to think that Godot was actually meant to infer God, and that is why he never appeared. I leave you to decide on that. I always thought the denouement was wrong. This is my take on what the third act might have been like. "Godot" actually makes an appearance. You will need at least a passing acquaintance with the two act Tragicomedy by Samuel Beckett to understand this. You may ask after reading-- were the first two acts necessary? Any resemblance to the works of the said Mr Beckett is purely coincidental.

Harvey didn't see the cars start to brake; he was too preoccupied with the large white van sitting on his rear. It was too close for comfort, but the driver was oblivious to any attempts to get him to back off. Harvey tore his eyes from the rear view mirror and looked forward. He was closing on the queue at an alarming rate, and hit the brakes hard. The wheels locked with a screech, and the world went into slow motion. "Oh God, this is it!" he thought.
