Abstract

ABSTRACT While talking about Asian literature, some confusing points need to be discussed. There are some styles of Asian writing found in the literature market; Asian literature that arrives with the English-translation model, one that has been already written in English by the Asian authors, and one written by a Western author. Asian literature covers works of writing produced by Asians in a variety of countries in Asia. The development of this literature is supported by the use of the English language in form of translation, and the emergence of English authors who write about Asian culture. For the growth of Asian Literature’s styles, this paper attempts to analyze three different styles of Asian novels; English-language novel, English-translation novel, and Western-author novel to define and classify it. The investigation of the theme; Asian resistance toward colonialism and Asian critique toward Western culture will be conducted under the scope ofOrientalism. The discussion of the nature of language and culture in Asian writing will justify the definition and classification of Asian literature as well. Subsequently, this paper detects Asian Literature as a work that must be written by Asian authors, thus it can strongly declare the real root ofAsian culture, tradition, value, belief, and feeling. It should be classified as works by native Asian authors and English-translation works as well.

Abstract

ABSTRACT Knowledge advancement in the field of technology is often considered an advantage. Humans are living alongside the disadvantages. Dependency ontechnological inventions has brought humans to a threshold where technology goes beyond humanity. This occurrence thus possibly leads todehumanization. Two problems are proposed in this research: forms of mechanistic dehumanization and bad impacts of mechanistic dehumanization. The forms of mechanistic dehumanization focus on acts of human degradation while the bad impacts of mechanistic dehumanization focus on the human that represents machine and robot. Michel Foucault’s sociological theory is applied to reveal the problems proposed in this research. Two of Foucault’s concepts are considered appropriate to be utilized: Power and Knowledge and the Regime of Truth. Both concepts emphasize the practice of power imposed on the powerless and theacceptance by the powerless. The finding discloses that one who poses power and knowledge can produce laws that are imposed toward thepowerless and shape them as the powerful wish to obtain the benefit. The powerless ought to be submissive, obedient even accept the truth of lawsunconsciously. People in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World show their unconscious acceptance of the Controller’s laws therefore they are treated and degraded as low as commodities to be made use of by the Controller. They become cold and rigid thus they show no distinction between humans and machines.

It tells about the male main character, Traynor, who chooses to end his life through assisted suicide because he is paralyzed as a result of a motorcycle accident. There are two questions to discuss in this research; the causes of assisted suicide and the causes of objectification. This research uses existentialism theory by JeanPaul Sartre.There are some concepts of theory i.e Freedom, The look, and The body that help this research to describe the causes of assisted suicide and the causes of objectification. The research method used by the writer was the qualitative research method. The result of this research showed that the cause of assisted suicide is the excessive freedom to choose to be free from physical pain and emotional pain. Then, the cause of objectification is the existence of the Other, such as The Look and The body that affect Traynor’s existence when people around him try to change his mind not to commit suicide.

Abstract

ABSTRACT It still becomes the issue that racial profiling is still done by the White police to Black young people in the United States. For that condition, Black people struggle to put racial profiling to an end. The struggle is reflected in one of Angie Thomas’ work, The Hate U Give, which shows the incident of racial profiling experienced by the main Black characters, Starr and her best friend, Khalil. In discussing the issue, the writer used the theory of Orientalism from Edward W. Said. The concepts used to answer research questions are Occident, Orient, and Power. The qualitative descriptive method was applied to analyze the incident of racial profiling by finding relevant quotations that contain evidence and racism. The writer found Prejudice, Stereotype, and Racial Discrimination as the causes of racialprofiling in many cases. Black people do racial socialization and the Black Lives Matter Movement to oppose racial profiling.

D. and Sebastian Condado de Haza were utilized in this research.There are two concepts used in this research. They are the European Vampire characteristics concept and Human-Vampire transformation concept. A qualitative descriptive method was applied to analyze Eli’s character as a vampire and Virginia’s character as a human-vampire by finding relevant quotations. The result of this research proves the myth about European vampire characteristics by Eli and the myth of human-vampire transformation issues by Virginia. There are two criteria of European vampire characteristics categories indicating Eli as a vampire; general characteristics and physical characteristics.Meanwhile, three steps of the human-vampire transformation myth can explain the suffering of human-vampire that are perceived by Virginia, which are vampire bite, depression, and suicide.
