Dissociative identity disorder or alter ego which means ‘the other I’ explains exactly what modern man widely suffers. Modern man realizes that the floor on which he stands is about to collapse down and under which there is nothing but darkness and madness. Therefore he creates an apollonian world that veils dionysian pit. He disguises himself in other identities, other characters, which he creates, not to cease to exist. When his apollonian world collapses, modern man is aware of what is broken is not the mirror but his fragmented ‘self’. This study aims to reveal the dionysian madness of Venus behind the mirror analyzing the lives of the characters in Paul Auster’s Newyork Trilogy with the help of various terms. Moreover; this study aims to inform the reader about Paul Auster’s Newyork trilogy as a postmodern detective fiction.
