Abstract

The end of colonial era does not mean the end of colonialism itself. Colonialism has disguised into many forms and manifestations: through economic, intellectual control, and more importantly, it is maintained through textuality, which in the other word, literature. Therefore, this study attempts to analyze the characterization of Arabs-Muslim characters and European-Christian characters in Karl May’s travel narrative entitled Oriental Odyssey I: in the Shadow of the Padishah through the Desert. This study employs qualitative descriptive method and postcolonial literary analysis to answer the research questions: 1)How are Arabs-Muslim characters represented in the text?; 2)How are European-Christian characters represented in the text?; 3)How do these contrast each other and what can postcolonial criticism do about it?. From the result of the analysis, it is found that the Arabs-Muslim characters are represented in negative way, that is as evil or as inferior. The European-Christian character, on the other hand, is represented in positive way, that is as good as well as superior. Those evidences, then, become one of major proofs that the colonialism legacy presents in Karl May’s travel narrative Oriental Odyssey I.
