The Deceased is one of Nušić’s most significant satirical comedies, wherein an epic connection between the money and the power held by the government is exposed. We are presented with a realistic picture of the origins of significant money investments, spiking career speed-ups and questionable values of some PhD degrees. By means of a tragic capitulation of a robbed intellectual person, the harsh truth is being told about many authorities, both of the then society, and of the present one, stemming from robbery, deception, the take-over right and perjury.
