Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — dvanhlast @ 7:31 am


The two leading characters of The Power and the Glory, the priest and the lieutenant are built upon the contrast to each other. It is because in describing the deficiencies of one man, Graham Greene also creates the virtues of the other. Yet, this thesis is a study on the two major characters? way of life to show that the differences of their ways of life are ironical for each suggests what the other should be. In doing the analysis the writer will do a literary approach by applying theory of characterization and irony. Thereupon, the writer finds out that as the final representative of God in a province cleared of priests, the priest does not show a good Christian character. He does his priest duty without deep feeling. He is also a drunken `whiskey? priest and a fornicator who has fathered a child. On the other hand, the lieutenant is endowed by moral characters for he is without sympathy to the weaknesses of `flesh?. He devotes his life to the governor he served and he also feels the responsibility to the poor and helpless people around him. Finally, in spite of the fact that he is an atheist, he needs God to fill the feeling of emptiness in his heart. Hence, the ways of life of the two central characters are ironical because their ways of life are reversed to what they are expected and the ways they lead their life suggest one to another.

An analysis of the efforts of Karim and Haroon in their search for identities in Hanif Kureishi’s the Budha of Suburbia

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — dvanhlast @ 7:31 am


In The Budha of Suburbia, Hanif Kureishi, one of the post-colonial authors, raises a problem that is encountered by most ex-colonized people after the colonial period. Confusion and need for identity are experienced by these ex-colonized people as the effect of colonialism either in the ex-colonized country or the mother country. In this novel, Haroon and Karim, the main male characters, are used by Kureishi to describe the condition of a person who faces identity crisis for his being `hybrid?. Haroon, an Indian comes to England to get higher education, undergoes a crisis of identity as a result of the colonial education he got during his childhood. He becomes a person with the physical look of an Indian and the manner, the taste and the thought of an Englishman. While his son, Karim, faces crisis identity as a result of his condition as a ?hybrid?. This agony leads both Karim and Haroon to search for identity. Identity becomes a key word in this work. Therefore, the thesis writer wants to analyze the efforts of both Karim and Haroon in searching for identity. Since this work talks about the problems dealing with the search for identity of the ex-colonized in contemporary Britain, the thesis writer analyzes the efforts of Karim and Haroon in the form of cultural approach using post-colonial theories which are also supported by historical fact especially the history of colonial education and the history of immigrant and the discrimination in Britain. After analyzing the efforts, it can be seen that although Karim and Haroon are both `hybrid?, they have different efforts in searching for their identities. In addition, it is only through a long process of searching for identity that both Karim and Haroon are able to find identity they desire. Finally, it can be concluded that searching for identity is a typical post-colonial problem because one?s identity is shaped by colonization that always produces a ?hybrid`.

A study on the construction of the meaning of the sea and meanings of the land in Rudyard Kipling’s captains courageous

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — dvanhlast @ 7:31 am


Rudyard Kipling who is known for his skillful ability of writing most successfully for children and also for his great British Nationalism wrote a simple novel, Captains Courageous which conveys the America?s atmosphere and characters. Yet, I see Captains Courageous is not simply a children classic as it has significant underlying meanings projected in the two settings of the novel, the sea and the land. Adhering to this fact, my analysis upon this novel focuses in finding out the construction of meanings of the sea and the meanings of the land as I see them portrayed throughout the story. In doing so, I apply the use of semiotics, the study of signs, in which I perceive these two settings, the sea and the land, as signs that possess certain signified meanings in each of them. Besides the application of semiotics in my analysis, I will also apply other supporting theories such as certain theories of sociolinguistics and Alfred Adler?s theory of superiority complex. These theories are very helpful for me in revealing and proving analytically that the construction of the meanings of the sea and the meanings of the land displayed in binary oppositions are: the sea/the land being unsophisticated/sophisticated, genuine/pretentious, intimate/distant, and broad minded/narrow-minded. The binary oppositions performed in this analysis, exposing the contrast between its two constituents, show that the emphasis is put on the meanings of the sea rather than those of the land. Still, although the qualities of the sea seemingly towers above the qualities of the land, it is worth observing that actually the emphasis is put more on the meanings of the land than those of the sea.

As similar as the class antagonism between the Javanese feudalist and the Dutch bourgeoisie at the end of the 19th century, the Javanese tried t o perpetuate its descendant in its path while the Dutch intended to uproot him from his feudal origin. Unfortunately, since the battlefield is directed to his personality., the conflict between the capitalist against the feudalist shift in his character building as a young inexperienced man. Minke himself must struggle against both of the two class representatives, since he has potentiality to defend or stand in both of the two sides concerning the influence that he receives from both of the two classes. Finally, the last task is to demonstrate how Minke develops to be a petty bourgeois character who is fluctuating in the midst of two classes. This young student?s possession of capital and production means make his position and consciousness identical with the bourgeoisie, but he is bound to the proletariat in his social position and his consciousness as well.
