ABSTRACT
The article draws a parallel between the novels "Doramundo," by Geraldo Ferraz and "The Oresteia," by Aeschylus. Doramundo presents a clash between individual desires and collective order in the society. It mentions that the methods adopted by the collectives are not able to deal with the individual aspirations. The Oresteia tries to develop the basic social contract between the individual and the collective. Both the novels deal with the change in power relations between men and women. It also presents an explained comparison between both the novels.
