In Herrad Schenk’s novel „Am Ende“ which is about old age, inner life of a woman caring for her old and bed confined husband is described. How an elderly woman resists against being needy is relayed to the reader from her perspectives by portraying elderly human type, his life style, thoughts and feelings. Many expression types in the fiction world of the writing are in fact reflection of the real life. And one of them is action of thinking named „inner monologue“and which a person does it by talking to himself. German author Herrad Schenk uses this expression element very often in his novel.

Together with the way this expression element is formed in the subject novel of the author, how expression element of the protagonist Elli in the form of inner monologue is formed, how it is applied and how it is used in the context are tried to be studied in this article.
