This paper is a study on analysis of alienation in selected work of literature by Peter Shaffer's The Royal Hunt of the Sun under the view of Lacan. Through analyzing Alienation elements namely the other, identity and desire experienced by the main characters both protagonists and antagonist, this paper attempted to prove that how the feeling of being alienated is created as the people in power conquer a land and make their victims believe that they are others.
