(Comparative Analysis)

Summary

Albert A. Makaryan, Haikanush A. Sharuryan
In this article, we have tried to analyze the play, Ancient Gods by well known Armenian playwright Levon Shant and the novel The Spire by famous English novelist William Golding using comparative and typological methods. We have attempted to reveal the generalities and differences of these two works.

From the comparative analysis of Levon Shant’s drama, Ancient Gods and William Golding’s novel The Spire, we have been able to clarify that the journey of the characters in both works toward God traverse through an earthly love (sin). This same issue is present in The Spire where Jocelyn has parallel relations – love, faith toward God – an attempt is made to construct it through the spire, however this also does not occur.
