Abstract

Scottish author Iain Banks examines the destructiveness of patriarchy in his novel 'The Wasp Factory.' Banks believes an authoritarian regime stifles the citizens within it, and the only way to create a humanistic existence is to overthrow the old order, basing the new one on a productive interaction of differences.
