One of the main elements in the Da novel is the fear and anxiety associated always with the characters forming the story. In fact, fear and anxiety are the main elements and the foundations of this novel, and they appear in any form at anytime and anywhere. Given the fact that there is a sort of essential and fundamental difference between fear and anxiety, it is natural that their appearance, as well as the reaction and positioning of the characters of the story against fear and anxiety, differ from each other. Each of the characters in the story also has their own strategy to reduce that feeling. An interesting point in this story is the relationship between these two senses, because sometimes one is an introduction to the emergence of another. In fact, in order to study one of these factors, it is necessary to study another formation way. In the article, it is tried to analyze the semantic sign of this novel as well as the formation way of different feelings in the hero of the story as well as the strategies that individuals use to express, change or conceal these feelings.
