Aggression is a concept that can be interpreted in a number of ways. It is a theme that is extremely vital and is discussed in literature by different composers. Aggression characterises an experience that is common to many Australians. From the first arrival to this continent, every immigrant has shared aggression. At one time or another, each one of us has also experienced aggression, in one form or another, whether it be in a school, among family members, in religion, in politics and in society. A literature however, conveys or represents different interpretation of these concepts. Aggression is a learned emotion that is built on different factors in person's environment. It is the combination of environment, society, and culture that creates aggressive behaviour. Aggression can be either verbal or physical. This is demonstrated in the core text drama "The Removalists" by David Williamson's that expresses a number of attitudes about Australian society including those regarding police brutality, violent behaviour, abuse of power in addition to domestic violence. Supplementary Materials, "Five Ways To Kill A Man" by Edwin Brock's and the "Web Site Article" on Domestic Violence demonstrates abusive behaviour. The most common example is the use of violence and control by men against women along with children. By examining these "TEXTS" we are able to clearly identify the techniques and the strategies used by different composers to communicate and present their ideas about "Aggression".
The capacity to be violent and aggressive can be seen in the excitement of attitudes and brutality drama by David Williamson's, The Removalists.
The play opens in a small inner suburban police station, built fairly recently but already having an air of insubstantial inefficiency. Sergeant Dan Simmonds, fat and fetish, lounges at a battered Neville Ross as if he were auditioning him for a crucial role in some play.
