Article from Journal - ilmiah nasional - terakreditasi DIKTI
CELT: A Journal of Culture, English Language Teaching and Literature vol. 16 no. 2 (Dec. 2016)
This article examines the absurd characters in Bakdi Soemanto’s selected short stories in the light of character reinforcement. Through the use of analogy of name, environment, and interlocking relationships among the characters, it is revealed that these characters reflect contemporary society’s aspirations and expectation of their exemplary leaders or individuals with high authority. The presence of such weird but wise characters discloses the blurred boundaries of sanity and insanity in striving for meaningful life as well as the meaning of life.
