Vostok/Oriens '2015, №2

The article examines the postmodern novel by Ihsan Oktay Anar “The Silent” (2007). The novel turns to deconstruction of Biblical-Quranic discourse from the point of view of the post-non-classical philosophy. The discursive analysis shows Anar discredits the motives, plots and characters of three Holy Scriptures. Anar deconstructs the visualization of the world as being a well-ordered entity with a single plot and Divine Conception by specific means of artistic expression (narration, carnivalization, travesty pun, hyper-personality musk, hybrid quotation names etc.).

Keywords: Turkish narrative post-modernism, textualization of the world, discourse, hyper-personality mask, deconstruction
