Abstract


WOMAN IN LITERATURE AS AN IMAGE OF MASCULINE DOMINANCE

Almost in every period, On the one hand women are being marginalized  and repressed into moral and ethic values, on the other hand they are exposed to majority of discrimination and discourse resting upon gender. Despite of the fact that women’s participation of the public is important in terms of women’s right; in the women’s private life, penetrating or marginalizing of the women into superior masculine dominance creates the contraption which determines the limits but that can not seen or not want to be seen, Hence, it is not wrong to say that society is shaped over women and they live under the available patriarchal dominance society that they shape.

This study; comparing the work of Elfriede Jelinek, Sevda Kadınları (die Liebhaberinnen) that pertains to Austrian literature and the work of Adalet Ağaoğlu, Ölmeye Yatmak, from Turkish literature, aspires to trace the indication of hegemonic effect and dominance over women who lived and had different identities in the same period. The reason why these works are chosen for this study is that the work of Sevda Kadınları is published in 1975 and the another novel, Ölmeye Yatmak, is published in 1973. So, in this circumstance, women who were accepted to live in different places but in the synchronic time and the culture they depended on, remind of a presence of research question that should be reconsidered, based on Pierre Bourdieu.
