  1. Introduction

This thesis tries to conduct a research into two plays by the British postmodern playwright Peter Shaffer Amadeus and The Royal Hunt of the Sun. It especially focuses on analysing the characteristic features and possible motifs of the main protagonists, and it further integrates the plays into the concept of postmodernism with the perspective of sovereignty and dominance of one culture over other cultures. Whereas many theatre-conscious people are familiar with the play Amadeus, which has gained popularity owing to the film adaptation by the director Milos Forman, only some know the name which stands behind this masterpiece. For the purpose of the contextual comprehension I have decided to include a brief biographical survey of the playwright’s life and career in my paper.
