Austrian writer Elfriede Jelinek’s novel "The Piano Teacher" has portrayed an extraordinary Female. As a fusion of angels and demons, the heroine worked as a paradox with all kinds of abnormal behaviors and mentalities. Without the existence of male, or simply of sex, female was no longer a secondary gender against male, but the only existing sex together with male. The missing father in the family cannot banish patriarchy from existing in the society. On the contrary, it has been inherited and developed in the form of matriarchy. Due to the lack of "him" in the family, this particular masculinised matriarchy has been focused and magnified in a more twisted, distorted, and morbid way. The work has revealed the delicate and ever-hidden patriarchy everywhere in the real world. It has shown the readers a male dominating society elaborated in the subconscious of humanity (both of males and females), restored the full picture of an unacceptable reality, which resulted into the irrevocable tragic fate of females. Regards to the future of women, the attitude of author is pessimistic and even despairing. She did not believe the rebel of a single female can change the world. However, it was her hopeless resistance and her pointless persistent reflection and questioning, that has given the work unique significance and value.
