Ideology, intellectuals and the generation of '68 in the trilogy of Adalet Agaoglu : lying down to die, a wedding party and No..
Abstract (Summary)I analyzed Adalet Agaoglu's three novels, Lying Down to Die, A Wedding Party and No using Louis Althusser's ideology theory and Edward Said's writings about the intellectual as the theoretical base. I explored the roles of ideology, intellectuals and the generation of '68 both in Agaoglu's novels and in Turkish society. She considers not placing humans in their deserved place to be the most important problem both in the case of the official ideology and the generation of '68. In this context, she ascribes to the intellectuals the role of conscience of the human race, with the function of helping human beings live the way they deserve.
