Humanity becomes autonomous with their mind, emotions, and will in the category of living things that it enters as human beings in the face of nature. With these features, which are claimed to separate human beings from animals and plants, there are mythological foundations that it produced in its way of finding meaning. The intersection of literature and mythology is also based on curiosity and origin. The myths, which are sometimes found in the surface structure and sometimes in the deep structure, are processed into the texts, forming the basis of the nodes in the works. It is important whose point of view the factors that determine the attitude of people towards people are based on. As a work in which the reality of evil, marginalization and denial stretching back to myths is cracked, Deniz Gezgin's novel Ahraz is in a place that prompts the reader to confront himself. The forms in which these long-standing beliefs correspond in society and where they transform one's life are critical because they are built based on normal and limited norms. The characters of Ahraz, whose roots are based on myths, struggle against normal and norms.
