English Abstract

This study is set to explore the theme of identity, its formation and conflicting.

The study targets two main concepts; ethnic identity and political identity, by scoping two novelists comparatively, the first is Jordanian Munis Arazaz wrote Alive In The Dead Sea and the second is English Aldus Huxley wrote Brave New World.

An exploratory method is carried out by implementing the postcolonial theory and conceptualizing the two main concepts of political identity and ethnic identity.

The analysis shows the protagonists suffer and homesick during their journeys in order to assert their own identities.

The novels exhibit a leading figure of comparing the two novels.

Other main characters are also struggling their life in order to assert their identity.

The analysis shadows the results of political oppression on their identity as it explicates the problematics of identity formation and transformation by the authorities.

The conclusion exhibits the national identity crisis and extends more to the bigger scope of confirmation of political influence power on shaping and forming the identity.
