WOMAN AS A SUBJECT AND/OR AN OBJECT IN THE GRACE OF MARY TRAVERSE BY TIMBERLAKE WERTENBAKER

Abstract

Author(s): Emine ?ENTRK

The Grace of Mary Traverse, a play written by Timberlake Wertenbaker, presents a multi-dimensional portrayal of the role of women by focusing on social, political, psychological, and also physical aspects. The imposed inferiority upon women compared to the supposed superiority of men in a patriarchal society is challenged by the female characters in the play. However, the main character, Mary is taken in her own quest. While trying to break her chains and learn the life and search for knowledge, she has fallen to the trap of mimicking the patriarchal attitude rather than subverting them and creating her own way. Thus, this article will analyse to what extent the main character of the play succeeded in the discovery of the world, knowledge, her identity, and herself while struggling to see beyond the glass only through which she was allowed to see the world for years. Moreover, the pursuit of finding her identity as a subject will be questioned as an act of turning the other people into objects.
