Erendiz Atasü’s novel, Midlife Dream, is one of the modern fictions which examines the concepts of identity and ideology in Turkey from the point of view of an existentialist. The relationship of identity and ideology with that of conciousness is forming the central theme of the novel. Around these basic concepts, the age group between the years 1950-1980 is considered as a generation who lived under the shadow of ideologies and idealism. The social restructuring of 1980s and the formation of individalism that appearerd after 80s, which was in fact, a continuation of the pre-80s generation, is one of the problems cross-examined in the novel in connection to the concept of generations. Universal existentialism, conciousness and subconciousness which are cross examined directly associated with the conceps of identiy and generation is forming the main argument in the novel.
