Reading Mental Liberation out of Setting in Pygmalion and The Cherry Orchard
Reading Mental Liberation out of Setting in Pygmalion and The Cherry Orchard

Saman HASHEMIPOUR [1]


İrlandalı oyun yazarı George Bernard Shaw'ın oyunu olan Pygmalion, iyimser bakış açısına rağmen, bazen insanların alıştıkları inançları bırakmaları gerektiğini de hatırlatmaktadır. Benzer şekilde, ünlü Rus oyun yazarı Anton Çehov tarafından özgürlük ve kurtuluş hakkında yazılan Kiraz bahçesi oyunu,  özgürlüğün bağımsızlığa götürdüğü farklı yollarını açıklar. Çehov’un oyun karakterleri, kendilerini kontrol altında tutan sisteme ne kadar bağımlı oldup, olmadıklarını gösterirler. Her iki oyun da soyut tanımların farklı insanlar için farklı anlamlar ifade ettiğini ve değişik sonuçlar doğurduğunu gösterirler. Pygmalion’da, kahraman eğtimden kaynaklı, zihinsel değişikliği ve rasyonelliğinin artması sonucunda özgürlüğe ulaşır. Aynı şekilde, Kiraz bahçesi oyununda, sosyal hizmetlerin serbest kaldığı dönemde bir grup insanın verdiği tepkiyi yansıtıyor. Bu karşılaştırmalı çalışma, İngiliz ve Rus toplumlarını sembolize edilen ana karakterlerinin zihinsel ve sosyal kurtuluşu sonucunda tanımlanan sosyal kimlikleri araştırmaktadır.

Pygmalion, a play by the Irish playwright, George Bernard Shaw is underpinning that transformation though good can come with certain limitations. He positively reminds us that sometimes people have to abandon beliefs they were used to. Similarly, The Cherry Orchard, a play about freedom and liberation by a famous Russian playwright, Anton Chekhov instructs the way liberation and freedom leads us through different paths in life to independence. Chekhov’s characters expose to what extent they are dependent on the system which controls them. Both the plays give us the dope to know liberation which comes to mean differently to any of abstract identifications and also breeds various results for different people. In Pygmalion, heroine’s mental changes compromises freedom and liberation which is resulted by getting educated and the growth of rationality in her mind. Likewise, The Cherry Orchard reflects a group of people’s reaction at the time serfs got social liberation. This comparative study investigates the effects of mental and social liberation symbolized in British and Russian societies through defining the major characters’ social identity.
