Abstract

This essay focuses on the importance of war in "My Son the Murderer"-on how an absurd violent world destroys any possibility of love. A modern version of the Greek tragedy, where the destiny imposed by gods on humans is replaced by the destiny human violence imposes on people, the violence of war is depicted indirectly, in the drama of the protagonists. To expose this, I will make use of the transactional reader-response theory, pacifist feminist criticism, Lakoff's metaphor theory and psychoanalytical criticism.
