According to French philosopher Michael Foucault, modern society is a structure which includes life and living subjects in the power mechanisms, and this inclusion results in controlling and manipulating the living progresses of the subjects. Foucault names this complicated relation between the subject and power is biopolitics. Giorgio Agamben takes this relationship between biopower and subjects to a different level and applies the Roman term homo sacer to the modern society and its power relations. In doing so, Agamben traces the transformation of biopower from Roman civilization to modern Western societies. The present study will analyze the concepts such as biopolitics, biopower and homo sacer from a critical perspective by making specific references to Samuel Beckett’s prominent work Molloy
