Literatue theme

  1. Apr 24, 2005 #1
    What's the theme called that describes the following situation:

    You're not happy with your life, so you make an alternate reality for yourself (as i found to be evident in "Diary of a Madman")

    That's a good word for it. How about misogyny? Gogol kind of insults women in the story (e.g. he is offended at even the idea of a "donna" being the leader of Spain)

    I haven't read the story (only your words on it) , so I can't say whether misogyny is a prominent part in it.
