Abstract [en]

The following essay analyzes the novel Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk from three different perspectives; Marxism/capitalism, masculinity, and the Oedipal complex. The aim is to understand why the protagonist in the novel uses violence as a means of expression. In the end it is concluded that all three perspectives are important factors when trying to understand the character's violent behavior.
