THE FEAR AND HATRED OF TURKS IN THE EUROPEANS: STRUGGLES TO LOVE

Abstract

Author(s): Ali ALTUN

This study examines how Turks are depicted in Howard Barker’s The Europeans: Struggles to Love. Focusing on Europeans’ historical ties with Turks, who posed an immense threat to the future of Europe and Christian world until the seventeenth century, it suggests that very little has changed since then in terms of Europeans’ political relations with Turks with references to contemporary world. Dealing with such issues as freedom, violence, sexuality and history in his plays through which he aims to ‘disturb’ the audience about what is happening in ‘the real world’, Barker indirectly appeals to minds of audience to re-think and re-evaluate all forms of discrimination in contemporary Europe
