This study begins with an examination of the "archi-pattern" of the Prodigal Son, then analyses the analogies and differences between this "archi-pattern" and its post-figuration in modern dramatic discourse as influenced by changes in the sociocultural code. Six modern plays are represented: Ibsen's "Ghosts", O'Neill's "Long Day's Journey into Night", Miller's "Death of a Salesman", Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf", Pinter's "The Homecoming", and Shepard's "Buried Child".
