Politics and Drama

Change, Challenge and Transition in Bernard Shaw and Orhan Asena by Dr Önder Cakirtas.

In Politics and Drama, by comparing the literary works of two of the greatest playwrights of our time, Önder Cakirtas reveals the similarities and contrasts between their political views and the political backdrop of their respective nations.

In Britain, George Bernard Shaw, the leading British dramatist for the first half of the twentieth century, wrote his plays to explicitly reflect his socialist political and economic views, and highlight the need for equal rights for women.

In Turkey, decades later, Orhan Asena confronted similar issues with plays that challenged the dominant political powers of his time – a stance which ultimately led to his political exile from Turkey.
