dc.description.abstract In his academic work Willem Anker shows a strong interest in the theoretical framework of schizoanalysis as developed by the French philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. Anker’s academic interest serves as the impetus for this study’s consideration of the possible influence of the schizoanalysis on Anker’s drama text Samsa-masjien (2015). The study uses the theoretical lens of schizoanalysis to analyse Samsa-masjien. It presents the text as an example of how Anker forms a creative alliance with Deleuze and Guattari. Furthermore, the intertextual conversation between Samsa-masjien and Franz Kafka’s Die Verwandlung (1915) and Josefine, die Sängerin oder Das Volk der Mäuse (1924) is highlighted. Kafka forms the central reference in Deleuze and Guattari’s minor theory. In this theory they describe Kafka as minor author and his literary works as minor literature. Taking into account the intertextual conversations between Samsa-masjien and some of Kafka’s works and following Deleuze and Guattari’s theory on Kafka, the possibility of regarding Samsamasjien as minor literature and Anker as minor author is brought into consideration. In considering Anker as minor author information not pertaining to the text is also brought into question (as with Deleuze and Guattari’s study of Kafka). Anker’s relation to the constructs of agency, inheritance and the female subject are investigated, in order to critically consider the manner in which he claims his minor position. The study relates to the feminist critique on Deleuze and Guattari and argues that Anker forms part of the problematic, masculine culture which Deleuze and Guattari symbolise for a number of prominent feminist literary theoriticians.
