Sinclair Lewis is a satirist of the American life and the first American who is awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Moreover, his works are done by researches in the reality. The novel, Elmer Gantry, satirizes the condition of religion in America at that time which is full of hypocrisy. Through this thesis, the thesis writer wants to show that there are some internal factors, which are Elmer Gantry?s character trait and his ambitions, and some external factors, which are his mother?s influence and the strict regulation of the church where he works as a preacher that make him to be a hypocrite. Here, the thesis writer uses the definition of hypocrisy and hypocrite and related literary theories of characterization and conflict to analyze the problem. From the analysis, she finds that his worldly habits, his arrogance, and his weak character; his ambitions of being a popular and rich man; his mother?s stronger influence; and the church?s strict regulation which is not suitable to his real self have caused him to be a hypocrite. He pretends to be a good and religious person in front of the people when he becomes a preacher although he keeps doing his preference.

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


This thesis deals with Olive Chancellor?s ambition to fight for women?s rights as seen in Henry James? The Bostonians. As a leading character in the novel, Olive has a desire to see equal rights and better treatment for women in society. Being a follower of women?s rights movement, Olive wants to be able to voice the rights for women in Boston society. But, she does not have a courage to speak in front of the public. Besides, it is not an easy thing to be able to make a change in the life of women by herself. That is why, I am curious to analyze Olive?s reasons to achieve her ambition in order to voice the rights for women in Boston society and how she can achieve her ambition in voicing the rights for women. In order to reveal the reasons I use the literary approach such as characterization and conflict, to know Olive?s characteristic and the opposition she has with Basil Ransom and Mrs.Bunage related to her ambition. Olive?s achievement is gained through the gifted speech of her new friend, Verena Tarrant. Analyzing the topic, I also use the theory of characterization to reveal Olive?s character traits that drive her to have the ambition. Then, applying the theory of conflict, I expose the opposition between Olive and Basil Ransom and the opposition between Olive and Mrs.Burrage. Throughout the analysis, I find out that Olive has to face struggles with Basil in achieving her ambition about the rights for women through Verena. Besides that, Olive and Basil try to win each other?s influence over Verena. The struggle between Olive and Mrs.Burrage occurs in trying to control Verena?s life for each other?s purpose and belief. With Olive?s persistence and Verena?s gifted speech, Olive?s achievement in voicing the rights for women in Boston society comes true. Verena helps Olive to voice her ambition in women?s meetings and conventions. As a whole, Olive is able to fulfill her ambition in voicing the rights for women in Boston society through her great efforts with Verena?s gifted speech.

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


The Eighth Day is a kind of mysterious story about the murder of a character, Breckenridge Lansing that finally leads to the changes of the lives of almost all of the characters in the novel. This becomes the reason why the thesis writer is interested to choose George Lansing, the hidden murderer in the novel, as the character to be analyzed. His personality disorder becomes the issue that the thesis writer wants to discuss because it is related to the case of the murder. Therefore, she questions why George Lansing suffers the personality disorder as seen in his attitude throughout the development of the novel and what the consequences of his personality disorder are. She finds that his family becomes the causes of George?s personality disorder, and it influences George?s character traits into a person with schizotypal personality disorder. Therefore, she needs literary theories like characterization and conflict as the main approach, and also psychological concepts of schizotypal personality disorder and parenthood as the supporting theory. The analysis discusses George?s early character traits, the changes of his character traits as he suffers schizotypal personality disorder, and the consequences of becoming a schizotypal person. He becomes hallucinated and paranoid, depends on others, becomes eccentric or peculiar, and lacks of self confidence. Then, at the end of this analysis the thesis writer concludes that George kills Breckenridge as the ultimate result of his schizotypal personality disorder, which is mostly caused by Breckenridge?s treatment to educate George. Besides, George?s mother and his sisters have also contributed to worsen his psychological problem.
