Abstract | Full Text

In this study, we examine Sabahattin Ali’s “Kürk Mantolu Madonna”, one of the most important literary classics of Contemporary Turkish Literature, and Max Frisch’s “Homo Faber”, a famous novel in Contemporary German Literature. The main purpose of this study on these works which belong to Turkish and German cultures is to evaluate the characters related to their social and personal alienation. Therefore we carry out our analysis in line with the similarities and differences between main characters named Raif and Walter and between female characters named Maria and Hanna in terms of the criteria of Comparative Literature by sociological criticism. As a conclusion, we reach the conclusion that, both the works reflect the alienation of human being in the society.
