A criticism of the play "Masks or Souls?" by Halide Edib is presented. It gives evidence to prove that Edib is a pacifist and an anti-colonialist, contesting his local reputation as a nationalist which he has gained from other works. It gives a comprehensive analysis of the play. It also argues that Edib's works should be considered for the study of anti-war literature.
