Abstract

Author(s): Mahmoud DARAM Marziyeh S. GHOREISHI

This paper looks at how the leading characters in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and the Persian poet, Nezami’s Layli and Majnoon challenge the patriarchal system of their societies through subverting power and power relations within their respective societies. It uses Althusser and Foucault’s conception of power in order to examine the lovers’ subversion of the patriarchal system. The aim is to show the various ways in which these lovers challenge and undermine the patriarchal institutions in their societies, hence threatening the patriarchal system.
