A Study of Ian McEwan’s Novels Atonement and Solar

A Study of Ian McEwan’s Novels Atonement and Solar in the Light of Žižekian Ideology

This dissertation aims to study two novels of Ian McEwan entitled: Solar and Atonement based on the psychoanalytical and ideological theories of Slavoj Žižek. Žižek is chosen because his criticism of ideology and his psychoanalytic theories are the best sources on which to base the theoretical framework. As a second mission of this thesis, it will study the apocalyptism that overwhelms many of McEwan’s characters in the two novels.

In order to study the psychoanalytical aspects of ideology on McEwan’s works, a complete study of McEwan’s characters was needed. Thus, a large portion of this thesis was dedicated to the Žižekian theory of processual subjectivity, in which, following Lacan, Žižek maintains that the subject is divided and always in a transitional process until her/is death. The processual subject lacks and sticks to the ideologies around in order to satisfy himself and to play around his/her desires. In Solar Michael does the same and in Atonement Briony.

Michael and Briony, then, are purely entrapped in the three levels of ideologies around them. The Doctrine, the Ritual and the Belief are the three levels Žižek theorizes for every ideology. The characters of McEwan get entrapped with the ideological manipulations. Briony begins with coordinating her deeds in accordance with the family traditions and Michael is entrapped in the ideology of end of the world and the earth’s apocalypse.

From this part on, the thesis pivots to the apocalyptic imaginations in the two novel, an aim that has been a crucial theme to be studied in this research. Chapter four of the dissertation emphasizes on the apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic imaginations encrypted in the two McEwan’s novels. Apocalyptic imagination is overwhelmingly found in McEwan’s works. And, they turn out to be something absolutely ideological. The commentary on McEwanian apocalyptic imaginations in the light of Žižekian theory is the concluding segment of the thesis.
