Abstract

John Peter Berger born in 1926, in England, led a long life with so many inspiring ideas and a vast array of works until his death in 2017 in Antony, France. Being a prolific writer, he has been tried to be defined by so many people around the world as an art historian and critic, painter and theorist as well as a feminist or a Marxist. However, the way he introduces himself is far beyond these qualifications: He evaluates himself as a storyteller recounting the real-life stories full of pain and suffering. In doing so, his stories do not merely serve as a medium for telling what people undergo in their lives but also they suggest new interpretations and meanings. Berger’s To The Wedding is such a story blending what is spoken in the story with what it leaves out unspoken, which ultimately manifests Berger’s deconstructive approach to storytelling.
