Bireyin trajedisi depresyonsuzyasama sansi olmayisidir.To understand the depression of the characters, one should observe the historical conditions under which they were brought up and the unconscious was constituted. The unconscious, which is full of the memories from the past, plays an important role in shaping the behaviour. And some of the thoughts are repressed for adaptation to society, which is accepted as normal in the life. The repressed which is part of the unconscious have continuous pressure in the direction of the conscious of the characters in their society. The role of unconscious and the repression that is part of the unconscious will be focused to explain the depression of the characters. People cry for the lost but what people lost is beyond the loss as it is beyond the consciousness. The tragedy of the individual is that there is no chance living without depression. It can be sometimes major as seen in Blanche or Willy?s ends. One is taken to bedlam and the other commited a suicide or sometimes it can be slight that we don?t understand it as it is seen in Doc and Lola?s life.This thesis will examine the depressive characters in post world war II American theatre using Freudian concepts. It also aims to display the social changes in American society and its role on the depression.
