“THE EASTERN SIN” BY LJUBOMIR MICIĆ AND “THE ADAM AND EVE” BY MIROSLAV KRLEŽA – TWO MODELS OF ANTHROPOCENTRISM IN THE EXPRESSIONISTIC DRAMA
Languages of publication
The aim of the text is to present two chosen literary visions based on the biblical myth about the creation of the world. The paper intends to investigate the archetypical images of masculinity and femininity in the Serbian and Croatian dramaturgy of the period of expressionism and to analyze the dramas from the perspective of history of literature and anthropology. The original sin is presented the The Eastern sin by Ljubomir Micić as the necessary condition to recognize the own divine power of the man who becomes the conscious creator of new existences. The main characters in The Adam and Eve by Miroslav Krleža are one of the first archetypical couples of antagonists in the writer’s works, and also the symbol of the eternal, unsolved sex conflict. The expressionism, placing the man in the centre of the interest, describes all his ambitions, instincts and emotions on various ideological and esthetical ways.
