Abstract

Harlequin novels are so popular that Harlequin romance emerges as a genre. Unlike on the heroines, there are scarcely any studies or works on the heroes, thus, I want to focus my study on the heroes of Harlequin Romance. By analyzing using the Male Sex Role in the 1980s and themes of masculinity in the 2000s, I will prove that there are four types of ideal men in the 1980s Harlequin novels whose characteristics originated from the ideal men in the society at that time, the Hypermasculine men with extreme masculinity and avoidance of any feminine sides. I will also prove that there are three types of ideal men in the 2000s Harlequin novels whose characteristics are in accordance with the Ubersexual men’s, the ideal men in the society in 2000s having positive characteristics of traditional manliness with some “feminine“ characteristics. The reason behind these changes is because of the changes in the heroines and the characteristics of men in the society in time and these push for the changes in the heroes. As a publisher, Harlequin’s goal is the highest selling rate, thus, they adjust to the market’s demand.

Abstract

This article deals with the main female character, Angel’s, redemption in the Christian Romance novel, Redeeming Love. This article will discuss Angel’s perception of her body before her marriage and how that perception changes after her marriage to Michael. To analyze Angel’s concept of her body, I will use biblical verses in the books of Genesis, Corinthian, John, and Luke. I find that Angel regards her body as an empty vessel before her marriage to Michael. By finding Angel’s perspective of her body before her marriage, I found that Angel uses her body and soul separation as a strategy to deal with her pain. Once she is married, Angel regards her body as the temple of God and uses her knowledge of her body as the temple of God to help others like her receive God. At last, I can conclude that the Christian romance genre can be used as tool to spread the Christian perspective about the body.

Abstract

This study aims to discuss Nina Sayers’ rites of passage which are portrayed through the use of many kinds of symbols. Each stage of rites of passage is represented by symbols. Thus, I will use the theory of rites of passage to match the symbols with characteristics of each stage and the concept of symbols to analyze the symbols so that the meanings are appropriate to the contexts and able to show the ways Nina Sayers’ rites of passage are symbolized. The analysis shows that each stage of the rites of passage is symbolized by many forms of symbols. It also shows that symbols of rites of passage can actually hold more than one meaning as they can change meanings in each stage of rites of passage. In the end, it can be concluded that symbols in Black Swan have been effectively used to strongly reveal the rites of passage.

Abstract

Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters are two films that are taken from Rick Riordan’s famous Percy Jackson Series. Percy Jackson series is talking about a sixteen-year-old boy who does not know that he is a demigod and faces problem as a human being. Because he does not know that he is a demigod and faces problem as a human being, he conduct a journey to search his identity. In his journey to search his identity, Percy who has a certain disability as a teenager, can become a hero and save the gods’ world. In this paper, I will reveal the way Percy Jackson finds his identity by taking a journey and makes him become a hero in the world of the gods. I will combine the theory of Joseph Campbell, the hero’s journey, and the theory of Erik Erikson, the identity crisis, to analyze Percy Jackson’s journey to search for his identity. Besides Percy finds his identity in the journey, he also finds himself as a hero

Abstract

Masquerade is the use of mask and disguise by a person to hide a certain identity and make a new identity. The concept of masquerade that is the use of mask has been used in Japanese theatre such as Kabuki and Takarazuka; however those theatres also use the concept of gender bender. Nowadays, the two concepts are applied in Japanese comic that is popular in teenager. In this study, I would like to analyze the use of mask and gender bender by Makoto and Midori in Japanese comic W-Juliet and Midori is a Tomboy. I would like to reveal the strategy that is used by Makoto and Midori in wearing their mask and the meaning of the masks that they use. By this study, I will prove that femininity and masculinity are not related by sex and can be used as mask to create a new identity.

Abstract

The character traits in Shinchan seem to be contrary to the structure of masculine and feminine traits. I am interested in discussing the feminine character traits that are adopted by the male characters and the masculine character traits that are adopted by the female characters in a patriarchal society in Japan. Under the patriarchal system, there are rigid segregation of gender roles and the expected feminine and masculine traits. The main purpose of this paper is that even though some of the male characters adopt the feminine character traits and the female characters adopt the masculine character traits, the gender roles Japanese patriarchal system remains unchanged
