The game guides the players through the young protagonist’s – Max Caulfield—life as she discovers her rewind power. At first glance, players are deceived by the mellow teenage drama until the game introduces an interactive storyline. Every time the player is asked to make a decision, the game indicates there will be consequences. The game makes frequent references to Chaos Theory and demonstrates how this butterfly effect can grow into a pile of unexpected outcomes. As Max slowly explores her strange powers, the players set off on a quest to resolve multiple issues throughout the game, such as investigating the case of a missing girl, helping out a suicidal friend, and reuniting with her old best friend, Chloe Price. Each time Max rewinds time, she creates alternate realities that mess up with their reality, leaving holes in the time-space continuum. In the end, Max is left alone to decide who gets to live and die in the face of a tornado, which is portrayed as a consequence of Max’s rewind powers in the game. This paper examines Max’s as the evil from a posthumanist point-of-view. The following section focuses on the posthumanist approach used in this paper.</p> Tan Arda Gedik ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2020-10-09 2020-10-09 2 2 1 5 An Essay about Evil in Arundhati Roy's Novel The God of Small Things https://dergi.ingilizedebiyati.net/cuidek/article/view/260 <p>The evil and its reflection in literature in The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy.</p> çağla sonyürek ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2020-10-09 2020-10-09 2 2 6 8 The Evil Side of Human Nature in The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde https://dergi.ingilizedebiyati.net/cuidek/article/view/263 <p>Evil side of human nature is seen in different ways in the literature. Stevenson explains the evil side with the concept of good vs evil in his novel, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The novel tries to show us a human is not only one sided but also a human has the other side which we can not see exactly. Stevenson uses two different characters who are actually the same person namely, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Thus, he aims to explain the concept of duality. Lastly, this paper focuses on the connection between concept of good vs evil and religion, psychology in the novel.&nbsp;</p> Hacer Nur Yıldırım ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2020-10-09 2020-10-09 2 2 9 11 FROM GEORGE ORWELL'S SHOOTING AN ELEPHANT TO CIVILIZED EVIL OF LITERATURE: IMPERIALISM https://dergi.ingilizedebiyati.net/cuidek/article/view/265 <p>This paper aims to study the term imperialism as a subdivision of evil theme in literature. Through quotations from&nbsp;the Shooting an Elephant, an essay by George Orwell, imperialism and its negative effects which propels people to do evil actions, is studied in this paper. In other words, this paper tries to show how imperialism's evil nature is reflected and can be considered as "civilized" evil. That is why the term imperialism is studied under the evil theme in literature and seen as modern evil.</p> Volkan SARI ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2020-10-09 2020-10-09 2 2 12 15 the Victim of Protagonist: Villains https://dergi.ingilizedebiyati.net/cuidek/article/view/266 <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Evil is in every part of our lifes. That's why it is inevitable to see evil in literature. It is seen as fight of evil and good in most of the literary works or it can be seen as characters. Villian characters are reflected as bad and deserve to be punished while Protagonists are polished and praised. Main focus of the works always turn around Protagonist and we forget about the importance of the villains. Because it is clear that good manners does not take interest without evil characters or bad events. This text will be about how villain chracter are used in literature and how literature make us perceive good and bad.</p> Öykü Akşit ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2020-10-09 2020-10-09 2 2 16 17 BİLİM AŞKINDAN TRAJİK ÇÖKÜŞE: DOKTOR FAUSTUS https://dergi.ingilizedebiyati.net/cuidek/article/view/269 <p>İnsanoğlu dünyaya geldiği ilk günden itibaren hep yeni şeyleri merak etmiş ve kapılarını sonuna dek öğrenmeye açmıştır ama kimi durumlarda aklının yetmediği ve algılamakta zorluk yaşadığı yeniliklerle de karşılaşmıştır. Aklın idrak edemeyeceği bazı durumlarda insan, kendi sınırlarını aşmayı tercih etmiş ve çoğu zaman arzu etmeyeceği sonuçların altına girmiştir. Doktor Faustus, Marlowe'un akademik karakteri ve öğrenme açlığı olan bir Rönesans kahramanıdır. Tıpkı her insan gibi Faustus'da bildiğinden fazla fazlasını öğrenmek ve anlayabilmek istemiş ve bu yolda şeytandan ve kötülükten yararlanabileceğini sanmıştır. Şeytan'ın hayırlı işlere vesile olabilmesi ise hem dini hem de ahlaki açıdan tarih boyunca büyük bir yanılgı olarak kabul edilmiş ve bu elzem gerçeğe karşı çıkanlar, hırslarının kurbanı olup hazin sonlarla cezalandırılmıştır. İnsan inanışına göre, şeytan iyiliğin veya herhangi iyi bir teamülün parçası olarak görülmemştir. İngiliz oyun yazarı Chiristopher Marlowe, tüm bu şeytan yanılgısını ve fazla hırsın çöküşe götürdüğünü Doktor Faustus oyunu ile tüm çıplaklığı ile gözler önüne sermiştir. Bu çalışma, Doktor Faustus'un kötülüğe giden sürecini ve şeytani karanlığın içinde kayboluşunu incelemektedir.&nbsp;</p> Murathan Gündoğdu ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2020-10-09 2020-10-09 2 2 18 22 The Bloody Chamber https://dergi.ingilizedebiyati.net/cuidek/article/view/272 <p><em>In this study, the process of finding the protagonist of The Bloody Chamber, one of the important works of Angela Carter, and its transition from childhood to woman, from unknown to known, is analyzed with an existential feminist view of Simone De Beauvoir. Beauvoir's "Woman is not born; she becomes a woman." statement emphasizes how Carter shapes the protagonist. In addition, this work of Carter is told as a revolt to the 20th century. Carter transforms the tradition into a modern by using the feminist approach and proves that women can become individuals without being dependent on men. Marriage is a beginning for the protagonist to find herself, and when she discovers her sexuality, she closes to find herself more. Thanks to Simone De Beauvoir's existential feminist approaches and Carter's contrast to traditionalism, it is concluded that the woman exists not only with femininity, but with her own decisions and experiences.</em></p> Çağla Ünlü ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2020-10-09 2020-10-09 2 2 23 29 A Reflection of American Society on an Evil Cliché: https://dergi.ingilizedebiyati.net/cuidek/article/view/275 <p>For many years, the horror genre has been a part of culture due to its success of evoking curiosity and thrill. Horror is able to gain interest most of the time, and it provides satisfaction for the audience, even though it is considered as an unrealistic experience. Yet, no matter how it looks far from reality, it contains both cultural and individual anxieties and fears in it so that it brings a new point of view by functioning as a mirror that makes possible to examine fears conveniently. Thus, this article will attempt to analyse the cultural identity of the United States of America and its reverberations on one of the well-known horror film based on William Peter Blatty's novel, <em>The Exorcist</em> (1973). From the political perspective, it will focus on American Exceptionalism, and it clarifies the relation between Calvinism and American Exceptionalism. Additionally, it will support the notion with the Jungian theory of archetypes by adapting the characters' unconscious mind in <em>The Exorcist</em> to the collective unconscious of American society.</p> Ceren Güleroğlu ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2020-10-09 2020-10-09 2 2 30 33
