?THE FEAR AND THE PARANOIA IN THE STORIES ?KORKUYU BEKLERKEN? AND ?NEST? IN TERMS OF THE RELATION WITH PLACE?

Abstract

Author(s): Esra KARA

The stories “Nest” of Franz Kafka and “Korkuyu Beklerken” of Ouz Atay are two works independent from each other, in the literature of different nations. The basic reason for taking into consideration these works by a comparative literature analyze is that both of them are fictionalized around the theme of fear. Both “Home” and “Waiting for the fear” deals with the question of fear originating from the external word, and a paranoia based upon this fear. Another identical aspect calling attention in these stories is that both stories are handled by an ambiguous expression (symbols). The aim of this article, it is not to demonstrate that these two works are fully identical, but to call attention to similarities and differences between them. By emphasizing upon the symbolic value of the place, it will also be examined the role of the place in the construction and the resolution of the stories.
