Guildenstern and Rosencrantz seem to give impressions throughout the play that exhibit sexual innuendos. In terms of their own bodies, they don’t have a sense of their own physicality. They get up to “stretch their legs”. There are sexual implications as well as Rosencrants of them offering to stretch Guildenstern’s leg. In addition to sexual innuendos they also seem to have a lot of anxiety and are still aimless even when they have been given directions. They are disoriented. Uncertainty pervades. They have no sense of direction and are really just idiots. They don’t know where North, South, East, and West are. They can’t tell where the wind is coming from.
