English Abstract

This thesis examines and analysis the concept of violence in Sarah Kane works, as one of the most controversial dramatists in the United Kingdom whose plays are both shocking and shaking to the audience and critics.

The thesis reflects how violence affects the life of Kane since her early stage of life leading to the renouncement of her evangelical beliefs .

Violence is concretized, reflected and depicted apparently in her plays Blasted in 1995 and Cleansed in 1998 and other plays Phaedra' s Love in 1996 , Skin in 1997 , Crave in 1998 and 4.48 Psychosis in 2000.

The thesis sheds light on the development of the concept of violence in Kane's character and her plays as well .

I shall argue and examine in this thesis that Kane's plays Blasted and Cleansed are both apparent reflections of drastic images of violence, bloodshed, rape, mutilation, cannibalism which she has reflected clearly as a depiction of deep rooted influence of violence in her personal and literary character.

Although Kane's debut play Blasted, was castigated by so many critics because of its onstage performance of violence, it can be reconsidered as an antiwar play which shows its authors concern for humanity and her hope for a better world where wars must be avoided.

In this sense Blasted is an antiwar play which addresses the audience's indifference toward a war as a threat of humanity .
