dc.description.abstract This thesis, based on Şebnem İşigüzel's book Venüs, rebuilds itself as a hybrid form in terms of genre as well as fiction; and how it positions its in relation to concepts of standardisation and absoluteness. Venüs is a book which cautiously preserves the state of in-betweenness through the characters that are built, the selection of concepts of time, and space, language and style of storyteller, the process through which the work builds itself, and the perception of identification or disidentification created. This work, which presents a parody of being confined to certain boundaries and points to a state of disidentification as an alternative, is read in this thesis in comparison with Virginia Woolf's Orlando, and the analysis shows the role carried out by these kinds of works to build a perception of identification/disidentification in literature. This thesis shows how in this work which insists that confining the identity within certain forms in a world where there is a complex and multifaceted network of relations can only be the product of a parody and how in the work identity is undermined and deconstructed.
