Analysis of Caryl Churchill’s Feminism Deconstruction on Top Girls

  •  Dan Yang    


This study, based on identity and selfhood in postmodernism, probed into feminism deconstruction, which would help to interpret the postmodernism narrative trends in contemporary English plays. With the purpose to make sarcasms on “top girls”, she deconstructed feminism through four aspects: feminine characters disrespected other feminine characters, feminine characters gave up feminine and motherhood identities, feminine characters’ success in different times and spaces embodied their sufferings, and the play without male characters was full of male’s impacts everywhere. By means of deconstructing feminism, she made sarcasm on top girls and blamed the power systems in the current society.
