    Shakespeare's Thieves and Faeries Shakespeare's Puck, the mischievous household sprite Robin Goodfellow, resembles a more benign sketch of Sir John Falstaff and the other motley thieves in Henry IV, Part One.

Falstaff declares, ". . . we that take purses go by the moon and the seven stars, and not by Phoebus. . ." [I.ii.13-15] and adds, "Let us be Diana's foresters, gentlemen

    Barbantio to do exactly as they wish. Iago primarily makes use of the double meaning of the word thieves to get Barbantio out of bed and force him to be confused with the situation.  Iago and Roderigo call out “thieves, thieves” to the sleeping Barbantio, who wakes up believing that there are thieves in his house.  However, Iago quickly switches the meaning of the word away from common house thieves to mean that Desdemona is gone from the house, “stolen” by Othello.  This double word play confuses

Given this knowledge, Vladimir ponders: "…how is it…that of the four Evangelists only one speaks of a thief being saved. The four of them were there - or thereabouts - and only one speaks of a thief being saved….Of the other three, two don’t mention any thieves at all and the third says that both of them abused [Christ]….But all four were there

    the cross. Lets talk about the cross for a moment. Jesus was supposed to have carried this huge cross only to be nailed to it and hung among thieves. First off, if Jesus was this big threat to a king and supposed to be the Son of God would not one think that he would go out with a bigger ceremony. I do not think that the king would just hand him among thieves. Second, on the third day he was supposed to move this huge stone and "rise".

    Beckett hints at his proposal to the solution to the human condition. Vladimir tells the ignorant Estragon the story from the Bible of the two thieves that were crucified at the same time as Jesus.

It's a reasonable percentage" (8). It seems that according to the story, reward or punishment is handed out depending

    	Iago uses a different tactic to manipulate Brabantio. He changes Brabantio's way of looking at the marriage of his daughter Desdemona to Othello. He awakes Brabantio by saying "Awake! What, ho, Brabantio! Thieves! Thieves! Look to your house, your daughter, and your bags! Thieves! Thieves!" (I.i.76-78) By saying this, Iago shows a new perspective to Brabantio by insinuating that Othello has stolen his daughter. Iago reinforces this when he say's, 		Zounds, sir, y'are robbed! For shame
