This thesis is a study of Thomas Hardy’s The Return of the Native. It focuses on the reasons and the results of Eustacia Vye’s strong desires in life. The writer feels challenged to analyze the reasons why Eustacia finally has two strong desires in her life and also the results of Eustacia’s strong desires. In order to achieve the goal of the thesis, the writer uses the theories of literature, namely characterization and setting. Besides, she also uses psychological concepts of depression, frustration, and suicide. The writer uses these psychological concepts because Eustacia undergoes depression, frustration, and finally she commits suicide. The writer finds out that there are two reasons why Eustacia finally has two strong desires in her life. The first reason is because she has t o move from Budmouth to Egdon. The different setting between Egdon and Budmouth causes her to have two strong desires: to live in the glamorous life and ‘to be loved to madness’. The second reason is because she loses her parents’ love and affection. The writer also finds out that Eustacia’s strong desires cause some results to appear. Her strong desires cause her to live in illusions. They also cause her to use all means to reach her desires. In this case, she uses Wildeve and Clym. She finally gets married with Clym because she thinks that through him, she can reach her strong desires. In fact, Clym cannot fulfill her desires. This causes her to be disappointed of her marriage. Her disappointment of her marriage finally leads her to have a love affair with her former lover, Wildeve. At last, her strong desires cause her to commit suicide. She commits suicide because she sees no hope anymore to reach her strong desires. Her strong desires have led her to her downfall. As a conclusion, how Eustacia’s desires lead her to her downfall shows that it is dangerous to have strong desires in life without being able to accept the failures that may appear.

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.

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.

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.

This study, through historical materialism theory, attempts to prove the existence of the class antagonism between the Javanese feudalist and the Dutch capitalist in the character building Minke, the main character of Pramoedya Ananta Toer?s This Earth of Mankind, out of which he becomes a petty bourgeois character. It firstly traces the existence of the two classes: the Javanese feudalist, as represented by his family, and the Dutch capitalist, as depicted by his European education. in the novel. The second is to prove the existence of the class antagonisin between the two classes in his character building. 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. To conclude, it is finally proven that the class conflict between the Javanese Feudalist and the Dutch Capitalist truly present in Minke?s character building and it is found out that he turns out to be a petty bourgeois character; to be the main petty bourgeois character in This Earth of Mankind
